> this clean (as well as a few other) is a side effect of me working on JDK-8151707 where I used instrumented build of JDK to find tests which don't pass JVM flags to child processes, as I was mostly interested in a subset of all tests which fork processes, there can be other which can/should use driver mode.

> in both cases, we didn't have these flags in JVM which was doing actual testing, and I doubt EnableThreadSMRStatistics from the JVM which just creates a process and waits for it to finish is helpful. I can add -XX:+EnableThreadSMRStatistics to the child JVM if you think it can be helpful.

Yes, please add those options to the child JVM.
