The XX-flag  AllocateHeapAt is currently not supported on AIX. Additionally I am not aware of any current plans to support it.
So the flag should be rejected at startup (and some tests using it have to be made non-AIX).
Fix request This is a test-files + AIX platform (arguments.cpp) only change; please bring it to jdk11u. The change deals with rejecting the AllocateHeapAt option at startup + adjusting a few related tests. I would like to get the tests for jdk11 green, especially as this is a LTS release and we will run these tests for a very long time. The patch applies cleanly.
