The flag is only ever referenced by G1 code.

CMS uses a combination of CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction,
 CMSTriggerRatio and CMSBootstrapOccupancy.

Not sure what you mean, do you think that the text should mention the
G1UseAdaptiveIHOP flag?

I would like to avoid a global option (in globals.hpp) referencing a G1
specific flag, although the global option clearly is also collector
specific flag.

The collector decides (in the typical case - listing all exceptions
would make the text half a page at least) at the end of a collection
whether the next gc should be a start of a concurrent cycle (i.e.
marking started).

I.e. the current max old gen occupancy is compared to the current
initiating threshold at the end of every gc.

Thanks,
  Thomas
