Review request for JDK-7118412: Shadowing of type-variables vs. member types

I have updated this patch to correct the shadowing of type variables by
both member and static member class definitions.

I have also included an improved testing framework that exhaustively
tests the possible combinations.

Note that a CCC has been filed for this patch, as it changes the way
that type names are resolved in the compiler.

Please review and comment.
