RFR [JEP 220] Modular Run-Time Images

Hi Chris,

I had a look at the changes in java.logging and java.management modules
(+ corresponding tests) and they look reasonable to me.

I also had a cursory look at the jdeps changes. It's difficult for me
to review that without importing the changes and playing with the
tool as this is a part I'm less familiar with - but I didn't see
anything that would be obviously wrong.

I skipped most of the rest (especially the build changes ;-)).

best regards,

-- daniel
