New webrev with test split for G1 and CMS:


Note that the CMS test intermittently fails even with these changes, due
to https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8060467.

I'll either need to wait for John Coombs to push his fix for that one
(it's already been reviewed), or add a temporary @ignore line to my
CMS test.
