Subject Re: Long jenkins builds with clover/ code cache warning.

Oh, I just digested a spoonful of hotspot source code. It seems there
is a magic option to attempt to clean the code cache before shutting
down the compiler...

  product(bool, UseCodeCacheFlushing, false,                                \
          "Attempt to clean the code cache before shutting off compiler")   \

Unfortunately it's false by default...
