These tests fails on Windows

EVALUATION Yikes! I missed the fact that these are new jcmd tests. I haven't looked at these particular tests so I don't know if these tests were written with MKS in mind at all. In any case, here is a much older bug that shows the same failure mode: 6977426 4/4 sun/tools tests can intermittently fail to find app's Java pid

EVALUATION This is the key output line: > NFO: MKS shell pid=135220; Java pid= This shows that MKS is being used to execute the tests rather than Cygwin. I don't think those tests support MKS anymore. Marking as "incomplete" for now.
