        Description

        This issue was reported on jdk9-dev here:
        http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk9-dev/2017-June/005900.html

        The --permit-illegal-access option in the JDK 9 EA builds was replaced by --illegal-access=<value> in jdk-9+175. This missed the final translation drop so now we have `java -help` printing wrong output when on non-English systems.

        Minimally we need to change the non-English launcher.properties files to remove the lines for --permit-illegal-access and avoid confusing developers. It's not critical that the translations document --illegal-access.
