You can use a comma-separated list when multiple bugs are involved.   
The only restriction is,  no embedded whitespace within the list

  342 # Also 8080165
  343 java/util/Arrays/ParallelPrefix.java   8085982 generic-all

can be

  343 java/util/Arrays/ParallelPrefix.java   8085982,8080165 generic-all
