The crash is caused by debugee exiting process by calling ::exit(), 
which causes C runtime to destroy static object 
(VirtualMemoryTracker::_reserved_regions)  while threads still access it.

The solution is to replace it with pointer type, allocates the object 
during NMT initialization and deallocate it during shutdown.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8054368
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~zgu/8054368/webrev.00/ 

    Ran nsk/jdi/VirtualMachine/exit/exit002 in a loop for 1+ hour on 
Solaris x64, no crash.
    Without the fix, it crashes within 5 minutes.
