Can I have some reviews of this simple fix:
Sending this to both Runtime and GC. The change is in runtime code, but
all the concerned flags are GC flags and I plan to push this through the
GC repository unless there are any objections to that.
When command line flags with the double type were introduced the methods
Flag::print_on() and Flag::print_as_flag() were not updated
correspondingly. The Flag::print_on() method was updated as part of this
But the Flag::print_as_flag() still didn't handle doubles.
I created a JTReg test that should test one flag of each supported type.
