RFR 8189319 : Add a java.util.Properties constructor that takes an initial capacity

It would be useful to have a Properties constructor that takes an
argument to set the initial capacity. Such a constructor is present on
many of the other Map implementations in the JDK, including Hashtable,
the superclass of Properties.
In particular, being able to specify the initial capacity of the
Properties object created to store the system properties could reduce
startup time. The current initial capacity of 8 is insufficient. We
could eliminate ~25,000 bytecodes currently spent resizing the
Properties by creating one of sufficient initial size.
There are ~60 system properties in a minimal Java app. I chose 84 - it
provides a good amount of wiggle room (and results in an internal
ConcurrentHashMap with a table size of 128; 64 would be too small, IMO).
