Hi All,


Please review the trivial change of adding check if object is an oop.


Summary: Code change to protect against the crashes that can occur if the object (obj) in the 'to' region which is being printed here has been overwritten and is no longer a valid oop.  


Open webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8150002/webrev.00/

Bug link: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8150002


Testing:  JPRT


Since this is a trivial change so I haven't run the jtreg tests.
