The problem is that the jdk/test/Makefile currently doesn't specify a size for the vm instances used for running tests. This results in "VM Ergonomics" sizing being used and the test VMs which get created are generally too large to run very many of them.

It also seems to work for me. Individual tests which require more memory can specify their requirements using explicit -Xmx options in @run tags.

Looks okay to me, I've always used -Xmx512m when running with agentvm 
and that value seems to work well for the jdk tests.
