Change "8030763: Validate global memory allocation" breaks the HotSpot build on AIX

unfortunately the merging of 8u11 into 8u-dev and 8u20 broke the
HotSpot build on AIX for those code lines.

While the fix is trivial (see below) I'm not sure how to proceed with
this fix in order to bring it to 8u-dev and 8u20.

The problem is that 8030763 is not in jdk9 until now so I can't fix it
in 9 and then backport it to 8.

Should I just open a new bug for 8u and send out a request for review?
Where should this RFR be directed to - to both hotspot-dev and
jdk8u-dev? And who will do the actual push?

Thank you and best regards,
