8187898: PrintStream should override FilterOutputStream#write(byte) with a method that has no throws clause

Would it be appropriate to add @Override to the new method (and perhaps
existing overridden methods).
Previously, calling FilterOutputStream.write(byte) would delegate to
write(byte, 0, length).
The proposed change duplicates the code and changes the ways that
overridden classes might see the call.
What's the benefit of duplicating the code and calling out.write(buf)?
Not my call, but in PSPrinterJob.java (970-977) it might be cleaner to
just delete the unused code and comment.
(The CSR will need to note the source incompatibility due to the removal
of a declared exception)
