Only close temporary jars to avoid poisoning global jar file cache #6307

Cherry-pick of #6273.

This is another alternative fix for the issues reported in jruby#6218
and diagnosed as a JDK bug in the following OpenJDK issue:

Rather than avoid the caching or leave all jar files open, this
patch takes a conservative approach. Temporary jar files that we
unpack must be deleted and should be closed even if globally
cached, since they will not conflict with other jar cache
consumers. Normal jars on the filesystem will remain unclosed, to
avoid impacting other consumers of the global jar cache.

This does mean that once a jar is opened by JRuby via our
classloader, it will not be closed until the process terminates.
Because this is a new behavior that may not be desirable in some
situations, this patch also adds a new property:

jruby.ji.close.classloader=true will close the per-runtime
classloader and any jar file instances it has cached, as before.
The default is "false" and in that case only the temporary jars
will be closed.

This fixes jruby#6218

After discussion on Matrix, we will pull this change into 9.2.12, but default the "close URLClassLoader" option to behave as in JRuby 9.2.11.

In order to prevent this behavior from diverging too much from the
behavior in JRuby 9.2.11, we will default this flag to on for the
JRuby 9.2.12 release. To get the new behavior, which will be the
default in JRuby 9.3, set JVM property jruby.ji.close.classloader
to "false".

See jruby#6218.
