Thanks for sending this our way, Vladimir.

Morris, there are a number of other places where parfait complains
about using the result of get_gen() without checking for null.  I'm
going to fix them a different way - by changing get_gen() instead of
changing all the callers.  So I'd like to close 8008677 as a dup of

JDK-8006173 [parfait] null pointer dereferences related to get_gen()

(Note all the other dups of that bug.)
