What's the point of test/hotspot/jtreg/runtime/jsig?

Hi Severin,

I would have to guess that this was intended to be converted to a Java 
test and either the main test file was not hg added, or else ...

I can't find the changeset that removed the sh file to try and see what 
happened. Between file renames and repo reorgs hg log doesn't seem to be 
able to track this.
