The changes in 4837564 require a new VM option to indicate if direct buffers are page aligned or not. We need a separate CR for the hotspot changes as otherwise the target releases will get confusing as the jdk part is for "7" only.
Closing this as WNF based on Alan's comment.
JDK 7 has been released since 2011 and so far there hasn't been a need for this so I suggest we just close this bug.
