      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.

      'java -help' output on Harmony-r544727:

      as applicable.
      java [-vm:vmdll -vmdir:dir -D... [-X...]] [args]

      Similar issue HARMONY-3876 was closed recently,
      but it looks like it was partially fixed: only returning value was corrected.
