I think that is what this patch is supposed to enable: concurrent pretouch. Where "concurrent" might mean "concurrent with application code". For example, init the heap, let the Java code run, and then use a background GC worker to concurrently pre-touch the heap. ("Pre-" becomes a little fuzzy here...).
