      Description

      When a CDS archive fails to load, we should print more helpful messages so that the user can diagnose the error more easily. This should be done for both static and dynamic archives.

      ===========================================
      ~/tmp/8279366/copied$ java -cp HelloWorld.jar --show-version -XX:SharedArchiveFile=HelloWorld.jsa HelloWorld
      [0.028s][warning][cds,dynamic] Unable to use shared archive. The top archive failed to load: HelloWorld.jsa

      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17+35-LTS-2724, mixed mode, sharing)
      Hello World

      In the above message, we should also print something like:

      Hint: enable -Xlog:class+path=info to diagnose the failure
