Also, I think the jtreg tests against the hotspot/test and 
jdk/test/java/lang/invoke jdk/test/java/lang/instrument should be run.   
These are open and jtreg can be installed via the openjdk developers 
page.   I apologize that none of these tests run without failures, so 
comparing to a non-modified JDK is what we do.   We also run with the 
fastdebug build so that the assertions are checked.

Let me know if you need help doing this.
