Hi all,

Could I have a couple of reviews for this tiny change?

There would be an arithmetic overflow with 
CMSScheduleRemarkSamplingRatio at CMSCollector::preclean() as the 
flag(uintx type with max limit of max_uintx) is multiplied by 100.
This change is simply rephrased the calculation routine to avoid the 
overflow and changed the flag's type to 'uint' because 'uintx' seems too 
large for the flag.
