Dear All, 

I would like to propose the following change which fixes an infinite loop. 

Bug:    https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8219214 
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~lucy/webrevs/8219214.00/ 

The method affected is called from nowhere inside hotspot code, but could be called via a debugger for diagnostic purposes. BUT: even that doesn’t seem to have happened in the past.

As an alternative, I would suggest to delete the method. Please voice your opinion. I am unbiased to either solution.
