Always run explicitly requested ways (extra_ways) for fast runs.

To keep validates fast, we only one run one way.  But I think that
it's important for some tests to run them a few ways, just to
make sure functionality, e.g. the profiler, is working.  This commit
changes the logic so that any way specified in extra_ways is always
run for fast.  The big changes is now profiling tests are run on

I also made it so the G1 garbage collector tests only run on slow.
