make/java/nio/FILES_java.gmk does not list

On building OpenJDK6 from the Mercurial forest with IcedTea, I found
that the class sun.nio.cs.Unicode is not built as it is not listed in
FILES_java.gmk.  Presumably, it was being pulled in before by some
dependency which has changed since b17.  The failure only occurs when
bootstrapping with ecj but I don't think we should be relying on the
dependency resolution of compilers to pull in essential classes (the
lack of this one causes the VM to fail to even print the help output).

This webrev fixes
the issue and should probably go into 7 as well.

Does this look ok? If so, can I have a bug ID to push it?
