The othervm and samevm is a mode for jtreg, nothing parallel, just
the way the vm is used.
It's using 'gnumake -j 4' that does the parallel runs of jtreg,
each jtreg is a separate process, using different output directories.
If the testcases themselves don't allow for this, then you can't
use 'gnumake -j 4', but those same testcases are probably the ones
that cannot be run by two people on the same system because they
want to use some fixed port or some baked in file path.
