Corresponding hotspot fix for 6612680: Remove classloader dependency on jkernel

sun.jkernel.DownloadManager is now a BootClassLoaderHook.  The jkernel VM will be responsible for setting DownloadManager as the boot classloader hook if sun.jkernel.DownloadManager is present.  Other JDK builds will have a null boot classloader hook.

EVALUATION http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/hotspot/hotspot/rev/4b966d9946a3

EVALUATION http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/hotspot-rt/hotspot/rev/4b966d9946a3

EVALUATION This will only be fixed in hotspot KERNEL build running on JDK 7 or later as the BootClassLoaderHook interface is added in JDK 7.
