The changes for JDK-8019834 has introduced a regression, lookup of hosts that start with a-f now fail with java.net.UnknownHostException: invalid IPv6 address.

The regression causes ~28 tests to fail (multiple areas).
verified by submitting a batch on a "a-f" named machine. http://aurora.ru.oracle.com//faces/Batch.xhtml?batchName=346860.JTREG-JDK-TRY-ALL

I've added noreg-hard as the issue depends on running on a host that starts with a-f.
