  added the requested output, printing some "caseX: some-description" at
the start of the test run.

Here is the new webrev:

CR:
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8079208

Unfortunately I just refreshed my mq patch, so I do not have diffs, also
I accidently rsynced the new change over the old one.

The change is really limited to adding the suggested parameter to the
testVM() method, and adapting the calls.

Did that, no problems. I was more asking about a way to indicate that the test prefers to be run on such machines to jtreg though.

Thanks,
