>> Running the VM with -XX:+Verbose prints dozens of register allocator debug messages even if no additional flag like -XX:+PrintOpto is specified. This makes it hard to filter out relevant information if other debug flags are used in combination with -XX:+Verbose. According to the documentation, -XX:+Verbose should only "Print additional debugging information from other modes" but should not print anything on its own.
>> I changed the code to only print messages if PrintOpto && WizardMode is set. This is consistent with other place in reg_split.cpp where we print debug info.
