RFR: 8195600: [Graal] jdi tests timeouts with Graal because debuggee vm is not resumed

Good question  When we have libgraal, there will still be an option (at 
least for debugging) to turn it off and use Graal the same way we do 
now, so it seems like the @requires would need to take that into account 
once we have libgraal.  Maybe we will need a new "vm.libgraal.enabled" 
or make "vm.graal.enabled" be false for libgraal?

It does seem a little backwards to require tests to know about the OOM 
handling details of different JVM features.  Instead, how about if we 
let the test assert that it requires "vm.no-background-oom" or whatever, 
and let the JVM decide if it supports it.
