[jdk16] RFR: JDK-8253996: Javac error on jdk16 build 18: invalid flag: -Xdoclint:-missing

This PR improves the diagnostic when javac is run in an image that does not provide a service provider for DocLint.

Instead of reporting messages about unsupported options, the following warning will be generated:

Warning: No service provider for doclint is available

In addition, as a minor cleanup, in the `jdk.javadoc` module, javadoc b bypasses the service loader to access `doclint` directly.
