We pass the outputStream to much more debug routines than openJDK does, as we write a lot more information to files e.g., in case of a crash.

I would like to contribute the changes that allow to pass the output stream to node->dump() and everything reachable from there.

This also fixes the usage of output stream in print_register_type() in oopMap.cpp and in MachNullCheckNode::format(), where a single print command still used tty.

Further we initialize _node_regs_max_index so that node_regs_max_index()  == 0 indicates that registers of a node can be accessed.  This is also useful in debug output.


Best regards,
