[11u] Apple Silicon and 8257852: Remove JNF dependencies from java.desktop module

JDK-8257852 removed JNF usage in JDK17. It consists of 8 individual changes and a bunch of follow-up fixes.
It is already backported to 15, 13 and 11.0.12-oracle, but not to OpenJDK 11u.

I believe this change is a preparation for MacOS on Apple Silicon which doesn't support JNF with MacOS BigSur.

We are currently not planning to backport it to 11u. Does anybody need it and is willing to take care of the backport work?

Best regards,
