Hi everyone,

Can I have a couple of reviews for this very small cleanup?


 From the bug report:

The SurvivorRatio flag used to be a platform dependent flag. It was 
changed to a platform independent flag with this change from October 2009:



- product_pd(intx, SurvivorRatio, \
+ product(intx, SurvivorRatio, 8, \

However, when the BSD port was integrated in 2011 the platform specific 
definition for BSD came in along with the port:



+define_pd_global(intx, SurvivorRatio, 8);

Both definitions are using the same default value, so there should be no 
need to have this platform dependent.
