It's time to sync up jdk/test/ProblemList.txt again. As a reminder, this 
is the file that serves as the exclude list when running the tests via 
Makefile ("cd jdk/test && make jdk_lang" for example).

For this update I've removed most of the lines that have been excluding 
tests from the jdk_rmi and jdk_management batches. These tests have been 
there since the list was created and as far I can establish, all stem 
from attempts to run tests concurrently, something that isn't currently 
possible with RMI tests because so many of them use the RMI registry on 
the default port. As part of this I have added new entries to TEST.ROOT 
that will tell jtreg that the tests in the specified directories cannot 
run in othervm mode or concurrently. These will be ignored for now but 
Jon Gibbons has changes coming for jtreg to enforce this. One other 
thing about the RMI tests is that the activation tests are woefully slow 
with the result that the jdk_rmi target takes about 30m to run. I've 
created 7144861 for this and any help to diagnose why these tests are so 
slow is very welcome.

I've added two serviceability tests to the file as they have been 
failing intermittently. I've also added two pack200 tests that are just 
too slow to run on a regular basis (I had a brief chat with Kumar about 
this last week so he agreed this is the right thing for these tests).

One final change is that I noticed that the tests in java/nio/charset/** 
were not being run by the jdk_nio target so this is fixed.

The webrev with the change is here:
