      Description

      sun.misc.VM included a number of deprecated thread-related methods for legacy binary compatibilty. After moving to jdk.internal.misc.VM, any legacy code will no longer be able to link, rendering these methods pointless (to be backwards compatible, sun,misc.VM would have to be reinstated).

      Removing the methods entirely from jdk.internal.misc.VM thus seems both safe and appropriate
