        Description

        Review uses of java_lang_ClassLoader::describe_external in favor of replacing with the new method Klass::class_in_module_of_loader for more consistency across error messages with regards to how module and class loaders are worded within the message.

        Also consider further improvements to Klass::joint_in_module_of loader() to combine the two class names reported and report instead of:

        (C and D are in unnamed module of loader 'app')
        to
        (both classes are in unnamed module of loader 'app')
