> Discussion in https://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/hotspot-compiler-dev/2019-October/035508.html doesn't tell where assertion (extra_hops < (16 + 2*count) comes from.
> In CodeHeap::mark_segmap_as_used wehn is_FreeBlock_join is true, it creates extra hops in _segmap. _fragmentation_count in inced and trigger defrag_segmap when reach threshold. In my understanding, extra hop can not guarantee under (16 + 2*count).
> In following extreme case, before HeapBlock free, segmap is all 0 (each blob use 1 smallest segment), suppose free action is applied from right to left. This increase 9 unnecessary hop for 1 continous HeapBlock. assertion (extra_hops < (16 + 2*count) is not safe.

> Proposed fix is assert extra hops not exceed _fragmentation_count. And if it exceeds (16 + 2 * count), give warning on two many extra hops.
