client VM build doesn't build in parallel anymore

There was a race with the JFR build tools when building multiple JVMs. 
:-( Erik produced a fix for this as part of  JDK-8202384), unfortunately 
this has not yet been pushed.

You can find the JFR fix part here:

If you apply it locally, it should resolve your issue.

If JDK-8202384 takes much longer to push, hopefully Erik can separate 
out this trivial part (which is already reviewed by me as part of 
JDK-8202384) and push it separately.
