The jtreg configuration files in the $REPO/test directories were 
regularized earlier in JDK 9 with

     JDK-8075543: Add tiered testing definitions to the JDK 9 forest

For consistency across the JDK, this included adding a minimum jtreg 
version to 4.1 b11 even if the tests in those repos didn't actually use 
b11 specific features. I think these same TEST.ROOT files should be 
updated in unison to b12.
