task.get(Long.MIN_VALUE, NANOSECONDS) does not timeout for a really 
really long time, when it should throw TimeoutException almost 
immediately. There is some other refactoring around consistent usage of 

I took the liberty of adding a trivial test to give addition coverage in 
OpenJDK, but there is a TCK test in the 166 CVS that exercises this, and 
in fact the sync'ing of that test into the JCK 9 ea is what promoted
