      Description

      'java -help', 'java -X' output is very poor in comparison with RI.

      Help options give very little information and it make worse Harmony usability.

      It looks like existing print_generic_help() and print_help_on_nonstandard_options() from vmcore/src/init/parse_arguments.cpp are not used.
