Gidday all:

Bug/Enhancement: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-6311046

Web review: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~dsimms/6311046/rev2/

Cleaned up the "hand rolled" memory bounds checking in 
os::malloc/realloc/free and type checking in checked JNI (GetString*), 
and unified into a single helper class "FencedMemory". Added some extra 
checks to checked JNI (release mode).

There is now some extra debugging support for free/release operations, 
FencedMemory::release_for_freeing()" will now mark user bytes with 
"freeBlockPad", which did yeld a result when testing:

Found a minor bug in CompilerQueue (hence CC compiler ML), shouldn't be 
a problem in practice (probably won't crash), but the code is 
incorrect...and now fixed here.

Testing Completed:

Ran on all platforms:

  * JPRT
  * jteg jdk_core & jdk_svc
  * "RT nightly".
