Thanks, you have the test fixes we needed for
Do you know the status of the two extra tests ( and that came in with Lillian's security fix import?

We are discussing whether or not to update to this for icedtea6 or skip
it completely and go with HotSpot 14 (which is already the default now).
I see the hotspot tests for 10 were removed and some new ones added. The
newer hotspot in jdk7 has even other tests. In icedtea we have combined
them all to have a bigger set of tests (there are 20 now). It might be
an idea to do the same (and push the hs 10 and hs 11 tests towards
hotspot in jdk7).
