The fix is not strictly bound to different platforms but to the resulting heap-size the test is run with. Both with Serial and Parallel the test fails if run on a platform using a heap alignment that forces the heap to be 104 MB instead of the specified 100 MB. It is a bit unclear why the test even passes with 100MB, since the calculation done in the test doesn't match the calculation done in the JVM.

Yes, I could have read the entire fix before diving into the code after seeing the deletions... ;)
