Sub Tasks

Description
As part of Suite B, we will need to provide the GCM cipher mode for ciphers like AES (See FIPS 800-38D). 

    6996769: support AEAD ciphers
    7030966: Add AEAD JSSE CipherSuites

Due to the time constraints, we will not be able to provide an implementation of GCM in JDK 7 FCS, but would like to be able to add this as an enhancement in a JDK 7 UR.  Adding this in an JDK 7 UR will need some API changes in JDK 7.
