openjdk-8: add recipes for openjdk-8 and openjre-8
This adds openjdk-8 for native and target builds and allows a stripped openjre-8 being built as well instead of trying to cherry-pick jre components from jdk-image. The recipes allow building openjdk-8 with or without: * x11 * cups * alsa/pulseaudio and let packager enable unlimited-crypto, if desired. To support certificate based java libraries, cacerts is created based on ca-certificates from OE-core. Since there can be only one PROVIDES for virtual/java-native and virtual/javac-native, move the provides to openjdk-8-native (I think everyone agrees it's a better choice than ecj-bootstrap-native). Plus: Applying a fix from openjdk-9 repository which fixes build issues using gcc5 Signed-off-by: Jens Rehsack <sno@netbsd.org> Signed-off-by: Maxin B. John <maxin.john@intel.com>
