Hi Kim,

Would it also make sense to rename the test now that it actually does 
not use PrintGCDetails nor Verbose?

Maybe that should have been done as part of the UL changes. We can also 
do it as a separate change after you have fixed the current issue.

WRT, the java.version/jdk.debug @requires support, I am all for removing 
what we don't use yet and adding it back when we need it.
