Hi all,

Can I get some reviews for this change for fixing this assert?

Previous patch(8042668: GC Support for shared heap ranges in CDS) 
limited _filler_array_max_size of G1CollectedHeap to be less than 
humongous threshold.
And this change led this assert as this flag is trying to fill the rest 
of regions with humongous object.

As a fix, I removed the limitation to allow humongous filler and added a 
wrapper function, fill_with_non_humongous_objects().
And replace it with current fill_with_object().
