Looks okay.

Since the number of tests with --limit-modules is small, filtering them 
out when running with Graal as JIT compiler is a reasonable approach for 
JDK 10.   At some point, we may revisit this and possibly a test library 
to deal with similar use case - tests with limited modules when running 
with additional VM flags requiring observable modules.  I will create an 
issue for it.
