I would like to request the backport of the fix for JDK-8011858 to
8u-dev. The fix can help reducing the memory usage of the C2 compiler
and is therefore needed to fix JDK-8129847.
Original (9) bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8011858
Unfortunately, the fix does not apply cleanly, as two affected files are
different in 9 and in 8u-dev. Here are the changes that I did not (could
not) apply to the 8u-dev tree:
- the fix was pushed into 9 on Aug 11 and did not cause any nightly
- all JPRT tests pass;
- all JTREG tests pass that pass with the unmodified VM.
Thank you and best regards,
