Surefire manifest jar classloading broken on latest Debian/Ubuntu Java8

      Description

      See issue [1], but in short: latest Java8 on Ubuntu/Debian/Mint family of Linuxes (am on Mint, Ubuntu derivative) contains this patch [3], and eforces Manifest class path entries to be relative, as defined in [2].

      Hence, surefire booter and rest of Maven classpath, that uses absolute URLs are simply discarded.

      Example error:

      # Created at 2018-10-30T21:34:43.339
      Error: Could not find or load main class org.apache.maven.surefire.booter.ForkedBooter

      using the new property -Djdk.net.URLClassPath.disableClassPathURLCheck=debug clearly shows that all the entries from the surefire JAR are simply ignored.
