Hi Andrew, 

this is a very good question indeed. My answer is two-fold:

No, for this particular bug it’s not worth to create a separate test. There already exists at least one in the Java9 JCK suite:

Yes, one might think of running a test suite subset multiple times with different parameters. In this case, -Xint and/or –Xcomp were helpful. Forcing tests to run fully interpreted or fully compiled helps in cases where a certain function, e.g. an intrinsic, is invoked via distinct code paths.

    Is there any addition to the test suite needed for this?
