6824141: test/java/rmi/activation/rmidViaInheritedChannel tests fail

Peter - two of RMI tests have been failing since we pushed the 
socket-channels update back in b36 (4640544). The socket-channel updates 
introduced a source compatibility issue for SelectorProvider 
implementations. The RMI tests for the inheritedChannel method have 
their own delegating SelectorProvider that doesn't compile because of 
this. The nio/nio/jdk repository has a fix to the source compatibility 
issue for some time but it's not in jdk7 yet. In the mean-time we need 
cleaner test runs so I'd like to update these tests to add the missing 
method. It's harmless and will continue to work if SelectorProvider has 
a default implementation of this method. Andrew Hughes has also created 
a bugzilla entry for this issue 

The webrev is here:
