Backporting JanosVM fixes to Kaffe

So, as you might've seen we just released a new version of the JanosVM,
which is a modded version of Kaffe.  For the most part we haven't changed
much in the original code base, but there have been a number of fixes and
added features that would be nice to port back to Kaffe.  Unfortunately, I
can never find the time to do it all and was wondering if anynoe else
might want to take up the cause.  Heres a list of some of the fixes: package is up to date enough to run the bouncycastle
  ( crypto library.

  New JAR file reader.

  Several fixes to satisfy Mauve tests, some of it overlaps with what
  Mr. Topic has done, but I imagine there are some he hasn't gotten to

  Optimized the socket receives in unix-jthreads.

  Several misc. fixes (e.g. checking the return value of malloc).

  Probably some other stuff I've forgotten.

I can provide a diff between a recent Kaffe and JanosVM, so it will mostly
be a matter of pulling out the good stuff and ignoring the rest.
