Description
Today there are three general JFR GC event tests:

- TestGCEventExplicit 
   triggers many GCs by calling System.gc()

- TestGCEventImplict 
   triggers many GCs by allocating lot's of memory

- TestGCEventAll 
   triggers even more GC by doing what TestGCEventExplicit  and TestGCEventImplict at the same time.

Since these tests run for all the different collectors they are very time consuming and the purpose of the unit tests is to verify the data, not stress the system, the TestGCEventAll shoud be sufficient.
