8003898 is the change to not select the XToolkit and I think is the most 
important to backport as that is seems to be what has been caussing 
tests that use AWT to hang on Macs, at least when using ssh.

Once that it is then there's a bunch of tests that can be removed from 
the exclude list, this is what 7162111 is about. As 8 and 7u have 
slightly different exclude lists then it might not hg import cleanly 
(which I think is what Rob was saying) so he might have to manually 
figure out the exact list of tests to liberate.
