Latest jigsaw b83 works well with the temporary hacks we have in place in
jsr166 CVS, but we do see one jtreg test failure.

Running a modern jdk with only -Xmx2m is pushing it, but you probably don't
want to arbitrarily increase jdk memory requirements just for jigsaw.

Should be bump up the -Xmx in this test or wait for y'all-dev to reduce
memory footprint?
