Ok, the majority of JDK failures I'm seeing are not an issue; they are
either compile failures from the optional NIO2 backport in IcedTea6 or
headless exceptions for the AWT/Swing stuff.  The former are known to
fail, as I just haven't had time to backport the tests.  This isn't a
major issue as most IcedTea6 builds don't enable the backport anyway.
The headless exceptions are also expected given the tests were run in
screen without any virtual framebuffer.  Perhaps we should have the
check-jdk target use Xvfb by default?

Two Gervill tests fail:

javax/sound/midi/Gervill/SoftReceiver/GetMidiDevice.java (compile failure)
javax/sound/midi/Gervill/SoftChannel/NoteOverFlowTest2.java : IndexOutOfBounds

The rest seem to be related to java.beans (can't find java.awt.Color
-- possibly a headless issue again) or crypto (having ECC enabled
seems to cause additional failures).

I don't think there's anything that's a stopper for b17, especially as
your results seem pretty good (and the failures seem the same as we've
seen).  We just need to make some decisions on how to resolve the
differences between the IcedTea6 and plain OpenJDK6 builds.

What do you think?
