Webrev - http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~fmatte/8194642/webrev.01/
Review thread - http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/hotspot-compiler-dev/2018-March/028378.html
This small enhancement is partial backport of JDK-8064814 JDK-8026324 JDK-8026333 and JDK-8026336.
Benefits: Compared to JDK9, JDK8u version of the error reporting has too little information on native OOM related problems.
This enhancement is to improve the error reporting to handle possible reasons for OOM.
2. 32 bit
3. Possible suggestions for 64 bit (Already exist with more specific cases)
Risks: There is no risk, code changes are part of error reporting, that will be invoked only during crash.
