      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Even if log rotation is not enabled, -Xlog:gc: fails to start the jvm if provided a path to a fifo (with active consumer)

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :

      <in another shell> less -f testpipe
      java -Xlog:gc:file=testpipe -jar yourjar

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      output of gc logs should be written to pipe
      ACTUAL -
      [0.002s][error ][logging] Unable to log to file /tmp/gclogpipe with log file rotation: /tmp/gclogpipe is not a regular file
      [0.002s][error ][logging] Initialization of output 'file=/tmp/gclogpipe' using options '(null)' failed.
