        Description

        The fix for 6819891 inadvertently introduced a memory leak, in
        the C-heap, of the order of 2KB*ParallelGCThreads per scavenge.
        Over a period of time such a leak can run the JVM out of C-heap
        memory and lead to availability issues in the field.

        This bug should be fixed in hs14 where it was first introduced.
        The bug affects the 64-bit compressed oops jvm using the ParNew
        (or CMS) collector.
