Hi,

   New webrev to use "-XX:+AssumMP" flag. Also add warning to recommend 
use this flag with "-XX:ParallelGCThreads" to remind user to avoid 
running with only one GC thread. This is verified by Oleksandr with the 
test case running on Linux which is not Zone configured.

   Same link.

Thanks
Yumin
