In the subset of the tests I have been running, it appears only one test [1]
is failing with agentvm option. I will try to run other tests in client
groups [Note: I will update the instruction to use jtreg groups with b119
results posting] and see what tests can be run in agentvm mode, but main 
in those remaining client tests are some tests may not consistently produce
same results - could stabilizing those tests be a goal for jdk9 repo ?
