Hi Calvin,

Per our off-mailing-list email exchange from the previous code review
for https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8211723, I created
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8227370, 'Remove
. I think the crash caused by premature runtime accessing of
_paths_misc_info_size should be handled as part of JDK-8227370, rather
than further patching up the SharedPathsMiscInfo.

Thanks and regards,
