        Description

        See JDK-8206434 for example intermittent failures this may help.

        gc/epsilon/TestMemoryMXBeans allocates the array and polls MXBeans to check the counters have changed by expected value. However, that sometimes runs into problems when other threads (notably, compiler threads) allocate memory on their own.

        Retrying the test internally should provide more safety against these intermittent false negatives.
