6902303: G1: ScavengeALot should cause an incremental, rather than a full, collection Summary: ScavengeALot now causes an incremental (but possibly partially young, in the G1 sense) collection. Some such collections may be abandoned on account of MMU specs. Band-aided a native leak associated with abandoned pauses, as well as an MMU tracker overflow related to frequent scavenge events in the face of a large MMU denominator interval; the latter is protected by a product flag that defaults to false.

The OpenJDK source code made available by Sun at and ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the
GNU General Public License <> version 2
only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.

    Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
    is making a combined work based on this library.  Thus, the terms
    and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.

    As a special exception, Sun gives you permission to link this
    OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Sun as indicated at
    ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
    regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
    and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
    provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
    governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Sun.

As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Sun's GPL2 OpenJDK Code to
build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that Sun
could not provide under GPL2 (or that Sun has provided under GPL2 with the
Classpath exception).  If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code, that new
GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules if the
new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
