Right, there are several things that need to happen and I think we need 
hotspot accepting 53.0 before javac starts to generate them.

The webrevs look okay to me, except it might be better to drop "New 
Module attribute" from the comment in classfileParser.cpp until JSR 376 
is further along and we line up the trucks to bring the module system 
into JDK 9.
