An other interesting combination is -Xshare:dump -Xcomp (or
-XX:+UseCompiler) because -Xshare:dump tries to disable compilation.
I think the fix is good for -Xint -XX:+UseCompiler combination.

>>> The VM crashes in product or fails with an assert in debug if -Xint and -XX:+UseCompiler is set. This is because CodeCache::heap_available() relies on the fact that if Arguments::mode() == _int, no compilation will be triggered. Although UseCompiler is first disabled by -Xint, the flag may be re-enabled if set via command line.
