      Description

      VM flags StackYellowPages and StackRedPages have no effect on Windows.

      No matter if we configure the yellow and red pages or not, the EXCEPTION_STACK_OVERFLOW is only thrown when stackbanging causes the last page from the original reservation (which means Hotspot is getting default Windows behaviour).

          Is there are a simple summary of why the red/yellow pages have no affect, and why we have never detected this?

          Once this issue is fixed, the implementation of the Reserved Stack Area (JDK-8046936) should be completed for the Windows platform.
