// There are three command line options related to the young gen size:
// NewSize, MaxNewSize and NewRatio (There is also -Xmn, but that is
// just a short form for NewSize==MaxNewSize). G1 will use its internal
// heuristics to calculate the actual young gen size, so these options
// basically only limit the range within which G1 can pick a young gen
// size. Also, these are general options taking byte sizes. G1 will
// internally work with a number of regions instead. So, some rounding
// will occur.
// If nothing related to the the young gen size is set on the command
// line we should allow the young gen to be between G1NewSizePercent
// and G1MaxNewSizePercent of the heap size. This means that every time
// the heap size changes, the limits for the young gen size will be
// recalculated.
// If only -XX:NewSize is set we should use the specified value as the
// minimum size for young gen. Still using G1MaxNewSizePercent of the
// heap as maximum.
// If only -XX:MaxNewSize is set we should use the specified value as the
// maximum size for young gen. Still using G1NewSizePercent of the heap
// as minimum.
// If -XX:NewSize and -XX:MaxNewSize are both specified we use these values.
// No updates when the heap size changes. There is a special case when
// NewSize==MaxNewSize. This is interpreted as "fixed" and will use a
// different heuristic for calculating the collection set when we do mixed
// collection.
// If only -XX:NewRatio is set we should use the specified ratio of the heap
// as both min and max. This will be interpreted as "fixed" just like the
// NewSize==MaxNewSize case above. But we will update the min and max
// everytime the heap size changes.
// NewSize and MaxNewSize override NewRatio. So, NewRatio is ignored if it is
