RFR(M): JDK-8028160: [TESTBUG] Exclude failing (runtime) jtreg tests using @ignore

I don't understand the reason for doing this. If the tests fail because 
of a genuine problem then there should be a bug for that problem and the 
test just becomes a "known failure". If that is undesirable why not just 
add them to the ProblemList.txt file?

It seems wrong to me to have any tests marked as @ignore.
