In the java/print group, 11 tests pass and 5 tests fail when printer is
not attached. I can remove it from the jdk_stable group.

I didn't see any issue with these tests on OEL 6. I am happy to remove
it from the jdk_stable group if anyone complain on any other OSes.

I found 13 tests from jdk_stable group that fail in headless mode. In 
the short term,
I can add a note in knownissues.html [1] page. In the long term, hoping 
to have a
solution for those failing tests.
