Can I get reviews for this small change to remove dead code from the
I'm working on a fix for JDK-8025564 that will involve adding
verification code to G1BlockOffsetTable. There is already some
verification code in that class but most of it is unused. To be able to
know what code I need to add I first need to remove the dead code that
is not being used.
This patch removes all the dead code that I found. Mostly it is just
simple removal of unused methods. There is one change that is a little
bit more complicated. The G1BlockOffsetArray constructor took a
parameter called init_to_zero. Some places in the code checked for this
value, but in reality it was always true. The checks were for
!init_to_zero, so the corresponding code was also dead code.
