We may want to increase the priority of GCM mode cipher suites in JDK sooner rather than later.

release-note=yes, suggested update: ----------------------------------------------------- Need to update "Default Enabled Cipher Suites" table in "Cipher Suites" section of SunJSSE provider of Oracle Providers Documentation. GCM cipher suites need to move forward to the head of the list, in the following order: TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_ECDH_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_ECDH_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_ECDH_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_ECDH_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
