patch for ParserController class

When we use the include directive inside a tag file like :
<%@ tag body-content="empty" description="Renders a date control to query the creation date of a content object." %>

<%@include file="/META-INF/tags/search/declaration.tagf" %>

And that this tag file is inside a jar file, jasper has an issue dealing the dependencies by losing the fact that the included file is inside a jar file.

static {
    _jspx_dependants = new java.util.ArrayList(4);

The other dependencies are handled correctly thanks to patch https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=43741 .

I propose a patch to ParserController so that when we detect that we are inside a jarFile we prepend the jarFileUrl to absFileName.

The patch has been made on the trunk source code of tomcat.
