Please review this fix for JDK-8069291. Unfortunately, the bug report isn't visible outside Oracle.
This test calculates Fibonacci numbers "recursively" via threads and compares the result with the classical calculation. I correct out-of-memory error which sometimes occurred on 32 bit systems. I changed how the recursive threads are created. Now left & right branches creates separately and thread wait one branch to finish before creating thread for another branch.
As part of the fixing the OOM issue I am moving the test to OpenJDK.
