While working on a different change I noticed that the tenuring threshold was
stored in a signed int. This struck me as odd, and since I wanted to avoid
some unintuitive casts in my other change I would prefer to change the
threshold to an unsigned.
The change is available here:
Several files are touched but there's just type changes in a few places per file.
In this change I also change the declared type of -XX:MaxTenuringThreshold and
-XX:InitialTenuringThreshold to uintx. This should not be a problem since we
don't allow negative values for these flags anyway.
