Core-libs folk,

Please review the following change to add a new service provider class

which can be used provide simple "command-line" access to select JDK
tools, without starting a new JVM.

The following tools are updated to provide access through the new SPI:
     javac, javadoc, javap, jdeps

It is expected that additional tools will also be updated to provide access,
but that will be done separately.

Compiler-dev folk may wish to review the changes to the langtools
