Hi, I'd like some reviews on 
http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~nloodin/8009681/webrev.01/ for JDK-8009681 

The issue here is that when MethodExitReturnValuesTest hooks into 
MethodExit events through JDI it uses an exclude list to filter out 
classes from which it is not interested in these events. This is bound 
to break over and over again as new features are added to the JDK. I've 
changed the test to use an include list instead, containing only the 
handful of classes the test is actually interested in.
