Thomas found this bug while in discussion of JDK-8202772 [1]

When contiguous committed region is found, it only breaks out inner 
loop. Instead of returning the found range, it continues scanning the 
rest to the end.

As the result, it squeezes all committed regions into one, even there 
are holes.
