Hi all,

  can I have reviews for this change that improves (regularizes) the
output of verification error messages to use the existing
HR_FORMAT/HR_FORMAT_PARAMS that include the HeapRegion number instead
of fixing this in every message?

The HeapRegion number is much more easy to read and understand than a
set of addresses.

I.e. this has been the n-th time I had added region numbers to these
messages manually while debugging some other changes, and so I thought
it would be worthwhile fixing this in mainline.

CR:

Testing:

Thanks,
  Thomas
