This change bumps the Windows devkit version used for Oracle internal 
builds of the JDK to one based on Visual Studio 2017 15.9.6. In the 
generator script, I removed the conditionals around subsections to force 
the script to always generate the full kit. I've also made it a bit more 
automatic in finding internal version numbers/directories as well as 
added those version numbers in the devkit.info file. The old generator 
script for 2013 and 2015 are hardly relevant anymore so removing those.
