JEP proposed to target JDK 11: 318: Epsilon: An Arbitrarily Low-Overhead Garbage Collector

My preferences would be:
1) Use the -XX:+UseNoGC flags, since it more clearly communicates to the
users that this is not a fully fledged GC.
2) Don't use an alias. GC aliases tend to cause problems for the
@requires tags in the jtreg tests.
3) Make -XX:+UseNoGC an experimental flag. I think this feature would be
next to useless if it was only available in debug builds.
