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.
