For LimitDirectMemory.sh then the test needs to be adjusted to take 
account of the direct buffers that the jimage code is created. We can do 
this after Jim's push if it makes things easier.

The SetDefaultProvider.java test is more tricky. I suggested to Jim that 
he exclude it temporarily because interposing on the default provider 
with this version of jimage code will lead to recursive initialization 
issues. Once we get to one jimage file and replacing the ext/app class 
loaders then it will become a non-issue and we liberate the test then.
