        Description

        The fix for JDK-8031290 is unnecessarily fragile - it contains an assert that checks the number of words of data that getisax() can return. If there are additional capability bits returned by getisax() that the JVM doesn't know about then by definition it can't use them anyway. Printing a warning for debug builds might be OK, but the current assert() seems to be enabled in production builds. The assert should be removed.
