#BootstrapClassLoaderSearchInJVMTI --- The JVM TI API  defines a
function, `AddToBootstrapClassLoaderSearch` , by which an
instrumentation agent can append a file-system path element to the
bootstrap class loader's class path. The bootstrap class path, as
such, no longer exists, but this function remains supported for now.

future release, or should it remain supported? It appears to be
critical to the operation of at least one popular instrumentation
Retain this method. Do not deprecate it.
