Remove tests from V2 unit test blacklist that were already passing #8060

Several of the tests work now without any changes, very likely thanks to #7866. These not only pass with V2, but also pass with remote execution.

I expect that a lot of it was due to #7866 and the prework that John did. Thanks @jsirois!

Properly handle source roots and resources with V2 Pytest runner (#8063)
### Problem
While #7696 added support for source roots, its implementation of stripping the actual prefix from the file broke use of resources, specifically when referring to their path in source code, e.g. calling `open('tests/python/pants_test/backend/jvm/tasks/')`. This is because we physically stripped the name, so the hardcoded file path would need to be updated to `'pants_test/backend/jvm/tasks/'`. Per #8060 (comment), this is not acceptable because it changes a public API.

We must have a way to relativize Python files so that their import statements work, but to also keep the full path.

### Solution
By populating the `PYTHONPATH` env var for the Pex that runs Pytest with the unique source root paths, Python absolute imports work without actually having to strip any prefix. This appears similar to what [Pycharm and IntelliJ do](

#### Alternative attempted: use `PEX`'s `--source-directory`
PEX is able to understand source roots via its `--source-directory` and `--resource-directory` args. The idea was to create two pexes: a requirements PEX and a sources PEX, then to merge the two via `PEX_PATH`. They would stay separate to increase the likelihood of cache hits.

This solution failed, however, due to Pytest failing to discover any tests. See #8063 (comment) and the comment below it.

#### Alternative attempted: only strip `PythonTarget`s
The first idea was to only strip any subclass of `PythonTarget` and keep the full path for other target types like `files` (2b68ebd). This failed quickly, though, because the `VERSION` file is not able to correctly imported in this case.

### Result
Two tests can be removed from the V2 blacklist without any changes to them required.
