The change exposes issues in a tiny number of tests that use test.classes in odd ways. For the jdk repo then two tests need to be updated. There are a few others in the hotspot [2] and langtools [3] repos that also need to be fixed before the jtreg requiredVersion can be bumped to use a promoted jtreg with the change.
