I can see that the fix for this issue is quite young. It just went in to the jdk/jdk codebase (OpenJDK 13) a few days ago. You should probably ask your questions on the serviceability-dev and/or hotspot-runtime-dev mailing lists since the fix was discussed there.

At the end, I think the fix could be backported to upcoming update releases of JDK11 and JDK12 (JDK10 is out of maintenance). But as it seems it's not a small and trivial fix (It does not even apply straight on the jdk12u codebase), you'll have to ask on the mentioned mailing lists for a sponsors of these backports who will do the work of integrating and testing.

Best regards
