Hi Nick,

Thanks for finding this issue and proposing a fix.
I agree with Alan that throwing SkipException would be a better
choice, we have started using that more frequently recently.

In addition jdk.test.lib.NetworkConfiguration [1] provides a
static printSystemConfiguration method that could be used to
print the interface configurations before throwing the
exception (you would have to add `* @library /test/lib` to
the test headers to be able to use it).

best regards,

-- daniel
