Thanks for verifying.

Yes, our nightly tests run with different (explicit) flag combinations. Adding -Xmixed to the test overrides the -Xcomp flag.

>> The problem is that the test specifies -XX:MaxInlineSize=100 to trigger inlining of intrinsics. With -Xcomp, this also causes many other methods to be inlined, blowing up the graphs and significantly slowing down compilation. Since the test uses the Whitebox API to trigger compilation, -Xcomp is not required.
