Dear All, 

the "mini-poll" mentioned below showed a clear result:
 yes - 2 votes (delete)
 no  - 0 votes (keep and fix)

I therefore have prepared a new webrev. With that, I removed the methods


from the files share/asm/codeBuffer.cpp and share/asm/codeBuffer.hpp. Submit repo results are still pending, but local tests on various platforms run ok. 

Your reviews are appreciated!

    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.
