Remove @author tags from code

                 Key: HARMONY-6348
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6348
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Jesse Wilson
            Priority: Minor

>From a 2004 email 
    "author tags are officially discouraged. these create difficulties in
     establishing the proper ownership and the protection of our
     committers. there are other social issues dealing with collaborative
     development, but the Board is concerned about the legal ramifications
     around the use of author tags

I'd like to remove author tags from Harmony code to bring it closer into alignment with Android,
which has no author tags.

Unless there are objections, I'll prepare a patch...
