G1: FreeRegionList_test() fails with G1 after the JDK-8058534 fix to HeapRegion::orig_end()


    • Subcomponent:
    • Resolved In Build:



        The internal VM tests fail when they are run with G1:

        $ java -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+ExecuteInternalVMTests -version

        The test fails on this assert in HeapRegion::hr_clear():

        assert(_end == orig_end(),

        The reason for the failure is that the internal test, FreeRegionList_test() in heapRegionSet.cpp, creates heap regions with invalid memory regions. There is this comment in the test:

          // Create a fake heap. It does not need to be valid, as the HeapRegion constructor
          // does not access it.
          MemRegion heap(NULL, num_regions_in_test * HeapRegion::GrainWords);

        The problem is that this is no longer true. The assert in HeapRegion::hr_clear() actually looks at the memory region.

        So, my guess is that the fix is to create more consistent memory regions in the test.
