Any chance we could clean up the names too? It's not obvious to me why
FDS means 'generating debuginfo files'.

What do folks think of modifying the OPENJDK build to use this as the
settings for the options above by default.

1. Yes
2. No
3. No

Is there any chance of this becoming consistent between hotspot and JDK?
It would be much nicer if concepts like strip-policy were consistent
between hotspot and the rest of the JDK.
