java.util.logging should use java.time to get more precise time stamps

        Description

        java.util.logging.LogRecord contains a millisecond time stamp, taken from System.currentTimeMillis() - and java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter uses java.util.Date to format the log event time.

        Millisecond resolution is often too coarse to accurately order log events coming from different JVMs.

        However java.time.Clock.systemUTC().instant() makes it possible to get more accurate time stamp. This RFE proposes to change java.util.logging to make use of the increased precision offered by java.time.
