In RunTests.gmk, the following line is repeated:

# Note, this could not be done during JDK build time.

In the options:

$1_JAOTC_OPTS := \
-J-Xmx4g --info \

-Xmx4g is huge, much larger than what we typically use. Is this 
intentional? This will risk crashing at machines with too little free 
memory. Will AOT fail to work with less memory?

There's an extra space before the comma here:

$$(addprefix --compile-commands , $$($1_AOT_CCLIST)) \

Question (to Erik, I presume): the idea of addprefix here is that 
AOT_CCLIST can be empty, and this was a convenient way to just add 
"--compile-commands <the list file>" if it exists? I was a bit 
confounded at first since normally we only use it for distributing a 
prefix over multiple items, and I could see no way for AOT_CCLIST to 
ever be more than one item.

About this:

# Note, ExecuteWithLog doesn't play well with with two calls in the same 
$$(info $$(JDK_IMAGE_DIR)/bin/java $$($1_JVM_OPTIONS) -XX:+PrintAOT 
-XX:AOTLibrary=$$@ -version)
$$(FIXPATH) $$(JDK_IMAGE_DIR)/bin/java \
$$($1_JVM_OPTIONS) \
-XX:+PrintAOT -XX:AOTLibrary=$$@ -version

First, what is the purpose of this? Is it to verify that the generated 
AOT library works? This will result in a lot of "java -version" being 
printed at the time when running tests. Perhaps the output should be 
redirected? (Assuming that java exists with a non-zero exit value if 
things fail, but if it does not, I'm not sure how this would help 

Second, there's no problem to use multiple ExecuteWithLog in the same 
recipe, however, the base variable needs to be different. E.g:

$$(call ExecuteWithLog, $$@_verify, \
$$(FIXPATH) $$(JDK_IMAGE_DIR)/bin/java \


SetupAot = $(NamedParamsMacroTemplate)
define SetupAotBody
ifneq ($$($1_MODULES), )

If think it would be clearer if the if-test is on the call site for 
SetupAot instead. Now it's unconditionally called, but does nothing if 
AOT is not used. I think that looks odd.

And here,

- run-test-$1: clean-workdir-$1 $(TEST_PREREQS)
+ run-test-$1: clean-workdir-$1 $$($1_AOT_TARGETS)

I don't think you can just remove TEST_PREREQS like that..? (The same 
goes for the other run-test-$1 instance.)


+ $$(addprefix -vmoption:, $$($1_AOT_OPTIONS)) \

I'm not really comfortable with this use of addprefix. I think a 
construct like:

ifneq ($$($1_AOT_OPTIONS), )
   $1_JTREG_BASIC_OPTIONS += -vmoption:$$($1_AOT_OPTIONS)

would be much clearar. Ideally, I'd like to see the same construct in 
the SetupAotModule function as well, but that's not as important.

The rest of the build changes look good. (I can't say anything about the 
test/**/*-list.txt files.)
