      Description

      As laid out in JDK-8275301, it makes sense to let NMT do buffer overflow checking.

      - it would give us C-heap overflow checking in release builds
      - the additional costs are neglectable
      - NMT needs intact headers anyway. Faced with buffer overwrites, today it may crash or cause other errors
      - it is a preparation for future code removal (the memory guarding done in debug only in os::malloc() and friends, and possibly the guarding done with CheckJNICalls)
