RFR: 7187882: TEST_BUG: java/rmi/activation/checkusage/CheckUsage.java fails intermittently

It is a good cleanup and the change looks okay to me.  I'll count on 
your testing to verify if this fixes the intermittent problem :)

StreamPipe.run() catches InterruptedIOException and IOException and 
ignores the error.  Is it safe?  Are the tests expected to fail in some 
other way (missing output?).  Should it (or waitFor method) throw a 
RuntimeException instead if any such exception is thrown?

Just curious - Is this intermittent test failure easy to reproduce?
