It makes sense to use the same test for jdk6 and jdk7 but it's not clear 
to me that these tests are useful for the older proprietary releases. 
For starters, we didn't have -histo:live so the test will fail. Also, I 
think Windows will bite you again because we didn't include jmap on 
Windows until jdk6. My guess is you'll need a completely different test. 
Anyway, as I said, I don't have any objection to the proposed test 
changes and I'm just pointing you that we shouldn't need any of this 
detection code in the tests checked into the jdk6 and jdk7 repos.
