RFC: Exclude list generator for IcedTea6 & IcedTea7

Hi all,

some time ago we discussed with Andrew Hughes how to synchronize
IcedTea's regression test exclude list with ProblemList contained in
OpenJDK source tree.

I prepared shell script (based on quite unreadable original jdk
Makefile) which can be used to join both exclude lists to one file with
structure appropriate to use by JTreg tool.

This script takes all tests listed in ProblemList and then filters only
tests for particular platform or for all platforms. These
tests are then added to IcedTea regression test exclude list. Original
list is saved in another file, so it's harmless to run this test repeatedly.

Personally I don't think it's a good idea to simply hide all problematic
tests, but this script should be useful for comparison "our" JTreg
results (IcedTea) with results published by Oracle (OpenJDK). For this
reason I did not made any changes in Makefile.am.

What do you think about this addition to IcedTea6 and IcedTea7? Any
comments are welcome ;-)
