Can I have a couple of reviews of the fix for this assertion failure?
The webrev can be found at:
This was an assertion I recently added and is used as a consistency
check for the size of the card counts table. The problem was that there
was a mismatch between the setting of _committed_card_num and
prev_committed_card_num. An upper bound was used when setting the former
and this was missing when calculating the latter. It only showed up on a
system where the allocation alignment was 64k. I moved the calculation
of the number of cards for a given committed table size into a helper
routine and use the helper routine to set these values.
The failing test cases on the system they fail on; spec jvm98 with MTT=0
