Format of commit messages

I've seen several bugs go in with commit messages like:

JDK-8888888: fix something

We configured jcheck to be pretty lax, so none of these will cause any 
problems. However, I think it would be a good habit to get into to use 
the same commit message format as is used in the JDK project, which is:

8888888: fix something
