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!

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