Hi all, I am working on bug JDK-6963118 
<https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-6963118> .
Root Cause:
- Sensitive timing dependency between events in Main and Sleeper threads 
are causes for test failure.

Suggested Fix:
   1) Main thread should wait for more than 1sec(made it 3sec) and check 
more often than 50ms(made it 1ms) intervals , sleeper thread may be 
still waiting for interrupt/wakeup hence main thread waiting for just 
1sec to flag a failure is premature . The reason is especially on 
windows high priority virus scanners etc run(we faced it when simulating 
failures) and kept the system busy.
   2) The test is essentially a sequence of 2 events
   a)Firing up wakeups/interrupts followed by a
  Check the sleeper.entries value and yield the main thread as required 
so that the above 2 events step in tandem.

Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.
