      Description

        os::check_heap seems to be buggy on Windows (see JDK-8147481, JDK-8148813, JDK-8147481).

        We have actually never fixed an actual bug with os::check_heap(). All we see are (a) bugs inside the implementation of os::check_heap(), (b) seemingly bugs inside HeapValidate() and (c) unreproducible crashes which are probably because of (b):

        https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/issues/?jql=text%20~%20%22os%3A%3Acheck_heap%22

        So instead of spending useless efforts for checking the heap dump, we should disable this feature with a develop flag, such as UseOSHeapChecking.
