      Description

        The following tests:
        hotspot/test/gc/g1/TestHumongousShrinkHeap.java
        hotspot/test/gc/g1/TestShrinkDefragmentedHeap.java
        hotspot/test/gc/parallel/TestDynShrinkHeap.java

        implement the method humanReadableByteCount which body was copied from the Stack Overflow site: https://stackoverflow.com/a/3758880

        It's just a few lines of code, but it could cause legal issues. The method should be either re-implemented or removed.

        Besides the potential legal issues, duplicating a code is not a good practice.
