      Description

      Adding blocking compiles from the whitebox API enables better testing:

      * -XX:-BackgroundCompilation can be expensive when applied globally
      * Blocking compiles removes the need for waiting on the compile queue to complete
      * Compiles put in the queue may be evicted if the queue grows to big - causing indeterminism in the test
      * Less VM-flags allows for more tests in the same VM
