Coleen provided a patch, that I've slightly altered, to fix the test.
However, the test will fail until JDK-8024547 has been resolved.
After the Metaspace memory pools are in we can see if it's possible to make this test run properly
It appears that the test is trying to load classes in order to get a MXBean memory usage theshold notification for non-heap memory.
Since the removal of the perm gen MXBean the code cache is the only non-heap MXBean with usage threshold capabilities.
Thus the test loads classes until it times out or until the counter for the class names wraps around.
I'd say that there's no good way to fix this test other than removing it. Trying to fill up the code cache in order to get a notification seems to be very fragile, with the test being run both with and without -Xcomp etc.
