Please review this small change which fixes the definition of the tier1_gc_1 jtreg test group.
The issue was introduced as part of JDK-8212657 "Promptly Return Unused Committed Memory from G1”. The missing backslash means "-gc/g1/TestTimelyCompaction.java” will actually be interpreted as a test group name by jtreg, resulting in an empty test group. There is no TestTimelyCompaction.java test/file, so either it was not added, or it’s really supposed to be test/hotspot/jtreg/gc/g1/TestPeriodicCollection.java (which was added as part of the same change).
In either case, since the test group definition has been used successfully for more than a year now it seems like simply removing the faulty line should do the trick..?
