Looks good, although I think someone from the HotSpot Group should also 
review it.

On the bug, can you add the details below into the Description? Also, 
since you have no regression test, you will need a noreg label (I guess 
noreg-perf would be appropriate). Also, the bug says it is BlockedBy 
JDK-8215205 which should probably be removed.
