When we had the legacy interruptible I/O on Solaris then it would cause 
problems for class loading, particularly with developer builds (no 
images) where the class files are loaded individually. To avoid this 
when we had to put this VM option on several tests. I removed a bunch of 
them in JDK 8, just didn't do them all. I can sort out this today.
