I'll leave it to Joe Wang to comment on the test but just to mention
that jdk9/dev is probably a better forest to aim for because that is
where the XML (and its tests) usually go. Also I wonder if it might be
better to put it in the same directory as the test that Joe pushed with
If you are getting approval to push to jdk8u-dev and jdk7u-dev then it
might be better to request a backport of Joe's change at the same time.
