not running this test in the compiler nightlies means we won’t get any information from this test for any changes done in compiler repo. that can lead to “escaped" bugs, which we are trying to avoid. Adding -Xmixed or -Xint to @run directives will fix 8148747, but not remove the test from compiler nightlies test set.
