Migrating FX patches to/from module paths

with the rather large change set that just landed in openjfx, there will be some developers with a need to convert existing patches for use with the new module source paths, or need to back port a patch to the old module source paths.
We have provided a set of scripts that can be used to help with this conversion.
Old style to new style (ex: module/graphics ---> module/javafx.graphics)
bash tools/scripts/fix_patch_8_9 < old_patch > new_patch
New style to old style, likely for back porting (ex: module/javafx.graphics ---> module/graphics)
bash tools/scripts/fix_patch_9_8 < old_patch > new_patch
* these scripts only modify the "diff paths" and should not modify the actual contents of the file changes.
* testing has validated the rather complex regex in the scripts, but ... triple check that the resulting patch is correct!
Likely the new_patch will fail to apply cleanly if there is an error, but check the resulting diffs to make sure.
* your mileage may vary.
