I run "make test", "make run-test" with whatever boot jdk is accepted in jdk9+. jdk8u does not have
lots of test definitions in TEST.groups (we would rectify that hopefully soon), so executing the
jtreg as standalone binary with system Java (8u), passing the $repo/test directory to it.

I think the minimal supported version should be jdk7u.
