Please review this small change to throw a NoClassDefFoundError 
exception, for class file versions >= 53, if a class's access_flags have 
ACC_MODULE set.  This behavior will be required in the upcoming JVM-9 Spec.

JBS Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8174725

The fix was tested with JPRT, the hotspot, java/lang, java/util, 
java/io, JFR, and other JTReg tests, the JCK lang and VM tests, RBT 
tier2 - tier5 tests on LinuxX64, and the colocated and non-colocated NSK 

Thanks, Harold
