        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        build 1.8.0-b112

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.1(Maipo)
        Linux 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jan 29 18:37:38 EST 2015 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

        EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
        8G memory
        two cores cpu
        1G network
        -Xmx1g -Xms1g -XX:MaxPermSize=512m

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        I am implementing a java agent program(APM), the requirement is to enable/disable the monitor function by UI, The underlying implementation is to use the instrumentation.retransformClasses api to redefine the montored classes at runtime.
        Asm is used to transform the class byte codes.
        A coredump or hs_error_pid file is generated when retransformClasses is invoked occasionally. So I designed a program to invoke retransformClasses iteratively on large number of loaded classes, a few hours later ,coredump will be reproduced.

        When retransforming the classes, the coredump will be produced even using the
        original byte code without changed by asm.

        The issue is found on oracle jdk 8, not found on oracle jdk6, oracle jdk7



        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        1.Implement a javaagent and a function to retransform part of the loaded classes at runtime
        2.retransform the classes without changed the byte code even, just do the retransform action, and return the original byte code copy in the transform method of transformer
        3. Repeat 2 in a program automatically in a few hours,sometimes half a day ,sometimes one or two days.



        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The retransformation will run without any errors
        ACTUAL -
        a coredump or hs_error_pid will be generated alternatively

        ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
        hs_error_pid information:
