Hi all,

Please review the patch:

- MethodHandlesTest::testCatchException() doesn't provide enough testing 
of j.l.i.MethodHandles::catchException().
- MethodHandlesTest contains more than 3k lines, an auxiliary code 
together w/ a test code, many methods aren't connected w/ each other, 
etc. All this leads to that it is very very hard to understand, maintain.

- the auxiliary code was moved to testlibray
- the test code was moved to a separate subpackage
- random signature is used for target and handler
- added scenarios w/ different return types
