I can have a look at it but I don't have the time to do it today. If Monday is OK then I can take it.

> Change summary
> For large heaps (I was focusing on 8GiB and above) it is common to have long continuous ranges of clean cards.
> Patch is introducing a short path for skipping ranges of clean cards using word aligned memory access instead of byte aligned.
> Patch affects serial and CMS collectors. For CMS collector stride size should be increase to see any performance gains (I was using 
> -XX:+UnlockDiagnosticVMOptions
> -XX:ParGCCardsPerStrideChunk=4096)
> For testing I was mainly using synthetic benchmark randomly modifying hash tables in heap, thus uniformly touching cards across heaps.
> Average duration of young GC pause were used as KPI.
> More details about testing can be found at 
> http://blog.ragozin.info/2011/07/openjdk-patch-cutting-down-gc-pause.html
> Though article is referring jdk6, my resent tests with trunk jdk7 show no difference.
> I was also tested patch with real application (Oracle Coherence storage node).
> With 16GiB of heap and CMS/ParNew GC, enabling patch have shortened GC pauses roughly in 2 times.
> Source code of benchmark used in test are available at
> https://gridkit.googlecode.com/svn/branches/aragozin-sandbox/young-gc-bench
> Main class YoungGCPauseBenchmark
