With kernel bundles available for download from servlet, we need a way for engineers to be able to specify a URL to get custom build bundles - this is the only way for engineers to verify their kernel related fixes before the changes are integrated into the workspace and bundles are staged at the servlet.  

This is also necessary for Pre-integration testing - SQE need to test kernel bundles before they are published on download servelet.

EVALUATION Added registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/JavaSoft/KernelDownloadUrl When this key is set on test machine kernel will download bundles from the location specified by this key value. Kernel build and bundles must be from the same build and must match.

SUGGESTED FIX Add registry key to be set on test machine.
