Most of the jtreg tests deliberately include non-determinism from use of
multiple threads, and there is no @key nondeterminstic tag, and adding
randomness tags to the tests that additionally invoke a prng doesn't really
seem useful.  Flakes R Us!

I support adding @key nondeterministic, and allowing that a tag to apply to
an entire tree (java.util.concurrent).  Do we have any tests dependent on
the phase of the moon?
