This seems to be the first use of vm.compMode in any test. Have you 
verified that it works in the expected way?

I found an odd comment in the JTreg documentation about @requires. It says:

"The @requires tag may be used at most once in a given test."


I doubt that this is correct since we already have tests with multiple 
@requires tags (even this test already has it). But it might be worth 
verifying the new @requires statement actually has an effect.

If it works as expected I think this change looks reasonable.
