When we bumped the feature version from 10 to 11, we forgot to also

This patch changes the check for build jdk to simply compare with the
current VERSION_FEATURE. This should always be the correct requirement.
The check for boot jdk is a bit more complicated. I initially thought
we could calculate it automatically from VERSION_FEATURE-1, but until
that version is actually released, we need to also allow
VERSION_FEATURE-2. Because of this we will still require manual
updating of this setting over time. So instead I moved the set of
acceptable boot JDK versions to the version_numbers file. This should
make it easy enough to spot and update when changing the
I also updated the build documentation regarding boot JDKs to explain
temporary N-2 situation. While at it, I also updated the part about
where to get JDK binaries since you can now download OpenJDK builds
directly from jdk.java.net.
Looks good to me.
