[10] RFR of JDK-8173411: Some testng tests check nothing in java time

non-test be run as a test, the result may lead to confusion.

For example, if look at MockSimplePeriod.java test result, it shows:
Total tests run: 0, Failures: 0, Skips: 0

Without looking into the detail of the test code, one may raise question 
why this test has 0 testcase.

If this is not a concern, I can withdraw this change request.
