      Description

      If unknown -XX options passed to JVM from JDK 7u5 b02 then it only prints message about fatal exception:
      /export/jdk/jdk1.7.0_05b02/bin/java -XX:unknownFlag
      Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
      Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

      With previous builds JVM also printing information about unknown options:
      /export/jdk/jdk1.7.0_05b01/bin/java -XX:unknownFlag
      Unrecognized VM option 'unknownFlag'
      Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
      Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

      Unrecognized options reporting works with any previous updates, JDK 1.7.0 FCS and with JDK 7u5 b01.

      No information about unknown options printed using -XX:Flags=<file with unknown options> too.
      That fact causing runtime/7110720/Test7110720.sh test failures:
