I've done some review on SplittableRandom earlier, and am happy to see this
go into openjdk8.

I'm not sure it's worth maintaining a TestNG version of the tck
test SplittableRandomTest.java.  Doug's tck tests are expected to
eventually become part of tck 8, so they should be run regularly that way.
 I also strongly encourage Oracle's QA process to run these tck tests
against vanilla openjdk8, thereby not losing any test coverage.  We could
add an ant target to jsr166 CVS to make that happen.
