Basically, the answer is yes, the default initiating occupancy for
OpenJDK, jdk6 and jdk5 is 92%.  But by default the initiating
occupancy is calculated from MinHeapFreeRatio and CMSTriggerRatio
and is calculated as 92%.  CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction is used to
override that calculation.  By default it is not used.
