Description
I was curious what the allow_dirty flag, which is carefully passed through quite a few layers of verify calls, actually controlled so I walked down the call chain.  The only potential uses of the flag appear to be in Klass::oop_verify_old_oop and objArrayKlass::oop_verify_old_oop, both of whose bodies are completely commented out.  It might be nice to completely delete this useless flag and method.
