// An evicting cache of cards that have been logged by the G1 post
// write barrier. Placing a card in the cache delays the refinement
// of the card until the card is evicted, or the cache is drained
// during the next evacuation pause.
// The first thing the G1 post write barrier does is to check whether
// the card containing the updated pointer is already dirty and, if
// so, skips the remaining code in the barrier.
// Delaying the refinement of a card will make the card fail the
// first is_dirty check in the write barrier, skipping the remainder
// of the write barrier.
// This can significantly reduce the overhead of the write barrier
// code, increasing throughput.
