This series spun out of a request on the mailing list last October on
configuring meta-java for using openjdk-8-native to compile other Java
recipes that might require modern API features not provided by the
bootstrap VM classes.

I've been running with this series on sumo, but I wanted to send it out
to get other thoughts on the approach.

It seems like there's already precedent for this format with perlnative
and pythonnative.  That was more or less how I expected java-native to
behave initially until I understood more about the bootstrap process.

If I've missed a valid use case of java-native and this change would
cause breakage to someone else's layer, I'd be fine with introducing
javanative.bbclass as a new class that provides the same functionality
as the following patch to java-native.bbclass.  (Its name would be more
closely aligned to perlnative and pythonnative without the dash.)
However, it appeared that java-native was essentially unused, and I
thought having both a java-native and javanative class would be
