    Description

      ZGC has the option -XX:ZPath to allow a user to explicitly specify where the backing file system is located. However, after ZPath was introduced, a new generic option -XX:AllocateHeapAt was introduced. This option is used the other GCs and have the same meaning/purpose and it's arguably better named. There's no good reason why ZGC shouldn't use that too, instead of -XX:ZPath.
