The AdaptiveFreeList<Chunk>::verify_stats method contains the following err_msg:

         err_msg("FreeList " PTR_FORMAT " of size " SIZE_FORMAT
                 " violates Conservation Principle: "
                 "prev_sweep(" SIZE_FORMAT ")"
                 " + split_births(" SIZE_FORMAT ")"
                 " + coal_births(" SIZE_FORMAT ") + 1 >= "
                 " split_deaths(" SIZE_FORMAT ")"
                 " coal_deaths(" SIZE_FORMAT ")"
                 " + count(" SSIZE_FORMAT ")",
                 this, size(), _allocation_stats.prev_sweep(), _allocation_stats.split_births(),
                 _allocation_stats.split_births(), _allocation_stats.split_deaths(),
                 _allocation_stats.coal_deaths(), count()));

The argument to coal_births is split_births, which will cause the error message in the assert to be wrong.
This bug make its more complicated to debug issues such as JDK-8026303.

Impact = Low, since the error message is only printed in debug builds Likelihood = High, since the error message will be wrong each time it is printed Workaround = High, there is no way to get this information from elsewhere Priority: LHH => P4
