No issue removing the test from the exclude list, that should have been 
done as part of JDK-8146712.

I think we need to establish whether the META-INF/jvmci.providers 
configuration files are meant to be in the run-time image. I assume they 
are but they have not been present until the recent changes (looks like 
the sjavac change). Their presence confuses the test, a minor oversight 
in the test that is fixed now. The issue is of course nothing to do with 
the jimage code. If you look at a build from a few days ago then the 
META-INF/jvmci.providers aren't in the exploded build, pull in the 
sjavac change and they are in the exploded build. Maybe the changes to 
the exclude/include patterns causes this but needs digging into.
