Please review this change that fixes a JVMCI code path that was swallowing ThreadDeath exceptions and thus preventing Thread.stop from working as intended.
The webrev also contains some minor unrelated cleanup to mx_jvmci.py needed for supporting the consolidated repo.

The internal test that caught this problem is now passing.
