Version of jtreg to use for testing of specific JDK 8u-dev releases?

Generally, the recommended version of jtreg for most releases is a build 
from the latest sources with a tag of the form jtreg4.1-bNN. You can see 
the tags here:

You can generally get a copy of a build of the latest version by 
following the links on the OpenJDK jtreg page, or by going to the Adopt 
OpenJDK group's pages.

(Oracle folk can also get builds from Oracle's internal servers.)

The primary exception to the rule to use the latest tagged version is 
with regard to running tests in the OpenJDK jigsaw/jake forest. In this 
case, the recommendation is to use a build from the tip of the 
repository.   Since you're asking about jdk8u, this does not apply to you.

Hope that helps,
