Looking for a sponsor to review changes made to two unit tests under jdk/test

We initially introduced CountdownLatch and now Semaphore, to replace the
Thread.sleep(10) which took place before - what appears to be a forced GC
(am I right?):

             System.err.println("GC " + i);

As the threads join at the ends of the other, then we can do away with the
Semaphore but how would we simulate the 10ms pause before the forced GC -
is that necessary? Can we still use Semaphores to implement pauses?
