6940310: G1: MT-unsafe calls to CM::region_stack_push() / CM::region_stack_pop() Summary: Calling the methods region_stack_push() and region_stack_pop() concurrent is not MT-safe. The assumption is that we will only call region_stack_push() during a GC pause and region_stack_pop() during marking. Unfortunately, we also call region_stack_push() during marking which seems to be introducing subtle marking failures. This change introduces lock-based methods for pushing / popping to be called during marking. Reviewed-by: iveresov, johnc
