I've been wanting to ignore this thread because I know the amount of 
work involved, but....

#1 Why doesn't someone sign-up and get the OpenJDK validation suite?
#2 Why doesn't someone pull Icedtea6, build it and then run the OpenJDK 
validation suite?

I don't know if waiting for others is going to get the desired results 
in this case..

After the project is rolling I'm happy to help make suggestions or give 
a hand with how to make Hotspot and the whole JDK a little better
