4364491 : Need classes to support images with float/double sample types
Currently the 2D API does not have DataBuffer subclasses for float or
double sample types. These are needed to allow the Java Image I/O API
to read/write such images. They belong in java.awt.image with the other

COMMIT TO FIX:
Need classes to support images with float/double sample types.
Classes to support float & double samples have been written for the Java
Advanced Imaging API: DataBufferFloat, DataBufferDouble, and
FloatDoubleColorModel. The source for these should be used to create
three similar classes in java.awt.image. The first two are about 100
lines of Java code and the third is about 600 lines.
