RFR: 8273157: Add convenience methods to Messager [v2]

> Hello,
> Please review the addition of a half dozen convenience methods to Messager to allow code like
>     m.printError("Error message")
> rather than
>     m.printMessage(Kind.ERROR, "Error message")
> For each of notes, warnings, and errors, two methods are added: one taking a message, the second taking a message and an element. There are other overloads of the printMessage method with additional arguments, but they are less commonly used and weren't judged to merit dedicated convenience methods.
> The changeset also refactors ~125 of ~150 call sites of printMessage in the langtools regression tests to use the new methods. The updated tests (or tests using the updated files) all pass. I became more convinced of the utility of the new methods after using them in the refactoring.
> I'll run a script to update the copyright years before any integration.
> CSR for review: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8273160
