RFR 7191662: JCE providers should be located via ServiceLoader

It seems that the jimage refresh change may still take some time, so we 
will end up removing the makefile related changes and then deferring the 
ServiceLoader related changes to Jake workspace.

Here is the latest webrev (Security source/test changes only, no more 
makefile changes)

Summary of changes from webrev.03:
1) switch back to provider class names for java.security file
2) separated out the java.policy change into its own as SQE has filed a 
bug for it
3) updated sun.security.jca.Providers class due to 1)
4) fixed sun.security.tools.jarsigner.Main to use the new 
Provider.configure() api
5) fixed a bug in sun.security.pkcs11.PKCS11Test regarding searching and 
configuring PKCS11 provider
