If the tests are unstable then it is pointless running them. Do you know 
if there are bugs submitted for these issues? If so then it would be 
good to add the "teststablization" label so that they can be tracked. 
Also if it doesn't look like the issues can be fixed quickly then 
excluding the tests (either by @ignore or the ProblemList.txt if they 
only need to be excluded on some platforms) would be good so that others 
don't waste time running them.

I think it would be great to have a goal to get these tests stable in 
the jdk9 forest. I don't know how much effort you have to put into it 
but it would be good to at least get some handle on the extent of the issue.
