Migrate Gerrit to profile::java
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In T253553 profile::java was created, which streamlines the installation and configuration of Java (picking the correct packages/repos depending on the target release, opting in to the hardened java.security config, passing Java opts centrally and more).

Gerrit should also switch to it.

A few notes:

Gerrit runs with Java 8 for now. The reason, I believe, is that when we replaced the hardware (cobaltgerrit1001) we have upgraded the Debian distribution to Buster and went to stick with java 8 to avoid introducing two changes at the same time.

The Gerrit servers have been switched to profile::java (which allowed for quite a few cleanups)
