This set of changes removes the runtime support for generation of debug versions that follow _g semantics.



JDK-8005044 remove crufty '_g' support from HS runtime code






Files have been modified to remove all reference and support for  debug versions that follow _g semantics.




Passed JPRT last night:


Additional Testing In process: ( suggested by Dan):

    - test with shared archive creation and use; see the e-mail
      from Coleen

    - just a usage message; visual inspection of the code

    - comments only; no testing needed

    - the only code changes come into play when the "gamma"
      launcher is used
    - and when JAVA_HOME refers to a valid JDK, the function
      fakes up a JVM path so that callers using the JVM path
      to find other things in the JDK will work.
    - I can't find any way that the actual JVM path value
      that is returned is exposed
    - I don't see a way to test this other than have a debug
      printf() or manual code inspection.
