Usual start of release update:

* Expected version number updates in the make system
* New set of data files to support --release 16 in javac
* Update to various version-related langtools APIs and tests
* Minor N -> N+1 updates in vm and vm tests

One javadoc test that failed under the new version was fixed before this PR was sent out.
