I questioned this because of the following comment line in ProblemList.txt

# More than one label is allowed but must be on the same line.

Which suggests that we could express the line like,

java/text/Bidi/Bug6665028.java solaris-all linux-all

But I could not find any detail about the syntax other than the above 
comment line for multiple labels, and there is no precedent in the 
actual list, I am not sure we could do this. In that case, I am fine 
with "generic-all"
