Description
-XX:+VerifyParallelOldWithMarkSweep enables code that uses a serial mark sweep gc to verify the collection done by parallel compaction.  It was useful during initial development, but at best it worked for a single collection and generated false positives because of reference processing.  It's now out of date and should be removed.
