it might be nicer to just check the exit code and not depend on the 
error message. Just on logistics, as hotspot and jdk changes take a 
different route into master it means that we'll need to wait until the 
hotspot changes get to jdk8/jdk8 (and probably down to jdk8/tl) before 
pushing a change to the LimitDirectMemory.sh test.
