Summary: Reduce test time and allow OOM.

This test attempts to fragment metaspace by loading increasingly large 
classes that are compiled with javac in a loop.  It doesn't really check 
anything about metaspace sizes or fragmentation, but looks like it has 
caught other problems in people's testing, so may be a beneficial 
test.   I verified that the GCs were reclaiming memory for each 
iteration in the loop.
