JDK 9 RFC on resolving some issues corresponding to apparently no longer failing tests

The issues [1, 2, 3] correspond to tests which were failing frequently until several changes were made to address some slow disks on certain testing infrastructure machines, increasing the timeout values of the tests, and splitting one of the tests into several smaller tests. Since these changes were made I have been routinely monitoring the list of test failures and none of these is among them. While this is not statistically significant in a pure sense, it seems as if the problems have likely been addressed, at least for these tests. I would therefore suggest using the issue IDs below to cover removing the “intermittent” key from the corresponding tests.

There will be some other tests for which I will eventually propose the same tack.
