I think Jon is suggesting that the subset that you run be added to 
TEST.groups (which will automatically turn it a make targe as way of the 
jdk_% rule ). On the surface this is a good idea but when I look at the 
subset of the tests that you are running:


then it's a bit ad hoc. I wouldn't object to adding a special group for 
this but it really amounts to all jdk tests except for:


If these tests aren't in your runs because of stability issues then we 
should make sure that there are bugs submitted and that they get some 
focus. In the interim then unstable tests can be @ignore-d or added to 
the exclude list. I initially thought that part of the issue was the 
othervm vs. agentvm discussion but I see in TEST.ROOT that othervm.dirs 
lists these directories already.
