JDK-8198795: Remove IDE specific files from the source code repository

Hi all,

There were several discussion in GitHub about removing IDE files (they are
linked from the JBS issue [1]). At the end, I didn't see any decision or
any change.

I would like to update the Eclipse files soon since the cleanup [2] is
almost done. These files allow anyone who checks out OpenJFX to start
working immediately. If these files are not provided, they would need to
manually configure them and currently that's a bit tricky.

I would like to know the current stand on this.
