Maybe this has been discussed previously but how do test libraries in 
the top-level repo work for test roots that are in the hotspot and jdk 
repos? Is there jtreg support for this or are you proposing @library 
../../../../../ ? I realize this might be a question for future steps 
but still useful to know where this is going.
