Description
Reported by ralf.schmelter@sap.com:

The flag -XX:EpsilonTLABElasticity (epsilon_globals.hpp, line 77) expects a double value, but uses max_intx in the allowed range. This leads to a truncation warning in the Windows build. If the value should only be guaranteed to be >= 1, then DBL_MAX should have been used instead.
Comments
Fix request The fix fixes the Windows VS2017 builds , it allows clean builds without warnings-as-erros disabled. That's why it is important for us to have it in jdk11u as well. I checked that the fix could be applied to jdk11u and could qimport + qpush it without any warnings/errors. So please bring it to jdk11u .

compilation error without the fix is (when running with VS2017 update level 15.8 and not disabling warnings as errors ) : C:/jdk-just-clone/src/hotspot/share/runtime/flags/jvmFlagRangeList.cpp(341): error C2220: warning treated as error - no 'object' file generated C:/jdk-just-clone/src/hotspot/share/runtime/flags/jvmFlagRangeList.cpp(341): warning C4305: 'argument': truncation from 'const intx' to 'double'
