7033292: G1: nightly failure: Non-dirty cards in region that should be dirty Summary: The epochs on the card cache array are initialized to 0 and our initial epoch also starts at 0. So, until the first GC, it might be possible to successfully "claim" a card which was in fact never initialized. Reviewed-by: johnc, iveresov, ysr
