Hi Jesper,

It looks to me as different issues. OOMEInReferenceHandler fails because 
of OOME with message "GC overhead limit exceeded". Two other tests fail 
because of OOME with message "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space".

Other two tests are in VM Testbase. So they cannot be fixed in openjdk.
