please review the following patch.
The flag -XX:GenerateCompilerNullChecks is develop and was originally added for performance testing without null checks in compiled code. Today, the compilers crash with various asserts if null checks are disabled and I would therefore like to remove the flag.
Tested with JPRT and RBT.
