Separating these out into their own target make sense to me, at least 
for the short term. One coment is that you've replaced com/sun/nio in 
the jdk_nio3 target with com/sun/nio/file but there aren't any tests 
there so I assume you should just remove it.

There is some additional plumbing in the top level repository's 
make/jprt.properties file that Kelly might want to comment on. My guess 
is that the new batch shouldn't need to be list there but Kelly might 
want JPRT be capable of running it.

A general comment is that Jon added agentvm mode to jtreg recently so 
for jdk8 I think this make file should be re-worked to take advantage of 
it. Also there are batches such as jdk_misc that are unusual mix of 
tests. My guess is that most people aren't familiar with the names of 
the test batches and would prefer to specify the tests to run (or just 
to "make" to run all tests or a reasonable default set).
