Hi Jiangli,

The changes look good. I think it's OK to exit the dumping VM because 
normally we should not be archiving such large objects.

For the various messages, I think we should include the object size (in 

Also, for this message:

  395       if (archived == NULL) {
  396         ResourceMark rm;
  397         tty->print("Failed to archive %s object " PTR_FORMAT " in 
  398                    obj->klass()->external_name(), p2i(obj));
  399         vm_exit(1);
  400       }

In addition to the size, I think we should also add obj->print_on(tty) 
to help diagnosing the problems.
