Please review this change for JDK-8098815. The CDS code which maps the
shared strings from an archive file must check for a zero length before
calling the G1 fill_archive_regions routine. It already checks this
before the earlier calls to check_archive_address and
alloc_archive_regions, for which fill_archive_regions is the final step.
The problem occurred only on Windows because the string table is not
included in the archive there.
