        Description

        The assert mentioned in the synopsis was recently weakened as part of:-

        summary: 6998802: ScavengeALot: assert(!gch->incremental_collection_failed()) failed: Twice in a row


        But it appears as though there may still be an issue with it. There were several nightly failures, for example:-

        It appears as though in all these cases it was a "concurrent full gc" (via +ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrent)
        that resulted in the assertion failure.

        Here's a typical stack retrace:-
