One of the test cases the test runs is to call com.sun.jdi.VirtualMachine.redefineClasses() while the target VM is suspended. The bytes passed to com.sun.jdi.VirtualMachine.redefineClasses() don't correspond to the reference type (the names do not match) and the test expects NoClassDefFoundError to be thrown.
The problem here is that the compiler thread is suspended while "JDWP Transport Listener" thread enters CompileBroker::wait_for_jvmci_completion() method and the code inside CompileBroker::wait_for_jvmci_completion() method falsely assumes that some progress by the compiler thread was made. As a result, it resets the progress wait attempt counter and goes into an endless loop waiting for JVMCI to complete the compilation.
