RFR: JDK-8156658 Common way to run jtreg tests

For test automation purposes we want a way to run jtreg tests for the different components (jdk, langtools, jaxp, hotspot, nashorn) in a unified way from the command line. We also want each component to be able to define how jtreg is invoked (problemlists, concurrency, agentvm, ...). There is already some support for running jtreg tests from the <top>/test folder, but it is not general enough since it isn't possible to pick individual tests or specific test groups. It is also not possible to direct the output to a common location.
The proposed solution is to be able to run jtreg tests using make from within the <top>/test folder like this:
$ make JT_JAVA=<jdk path> JT_HOME=<jtreg path> PRODUCT_HOME=<jdk product path> \
TESTDIRS=../<jdk/nashorn/langtools/hotspot/jaxp> TEST_SELECTION=<path to test or jtreg group> \
This will run the specified tests and collect output in TEST_OUTPUT_DIR/jtreg. EXTRA_JTREG_OPTIONS is also supported to add additional options to the jtreg command line.
No existing behavior should be changed.
