The tests can be adapted to The testcases can be adapted to test other 
providers. But since they are meant for Ucrypto provider, I coded them 
to explicitly test against Ucrypto provider. Well, I thought some people 
may want to run these tests if their build (or JDK releases) contains 
Ucrypto provider. If build doesn't have Ucrypto provider, the tests will 
silently pass, not affecting the overall result.

Let me apologize again for accidentally broke the 7u putback guideline.
Majority of the changes are under the closed part of JDK, thus it didn't 
occur to me that I have to separate out the part that went into OpenJDK 
for a public review. Learned the lesson the hard way as you aren't the 
only one pointing this out.
