please review the patch for 8139380.
Problem: The test compiler/ciReplay/TestVM.sh intentionally crashes the
VM and expects compiler replay data to be saved into a file
('test_replay.txt'). Since the JVMCI changes were pushed, the test fails
on some platforms we support because the file is not created by the VM.
The file should be created by VMError::report_and_die(). However, a
SIGSEGV is thrown in VMError::report() (report() is called by
report_and_die()) that causes the VM to exit without saving replay data.
Solution: Update VMError::report() to use an appropriate format string
to print the VM version in both JVMCI-enabled builds and builds without
- JPRT (testset hotspot);
- executed failing test on all supported platforms, the failure is not
