My  original aim is to solve JDK-8180904: Hotspot tests running with -agentvm failing due to classpath, which appears in Aleksey’s list:

It turns out that jdk9 solved this problem by JDK-8077608, so I backported it to jdk8u-dev. Here is webrev.

I drop ‘compiler/uncommontrap/TestUnstableIfTrap.java’ because jdk8u-dev misses it. I verified all tests listed JDK-8180904<https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8180904> can pass with -agentvm.
