The Jlink Plugin API is not going to be supported in 9, so
should not be exported [1], for use by third parties. Besides
the removal of the export, most of the changes are adding
@modules tags to existing tests.


Note: Sundar will follow up with 8172864 [2] to remove the
'--plugin-module-path'. Custom plugins can be written and
deployed on the class path using the --add-exports command
line, if required.

This change depends on fix in jtreg b05 [3], so bumps the
minimum required version.
