// Helper for ReduceInitialCardMarks. For performance,
// compiled code may elide card-marks for initializing stores
// to a newly allocated object along the fast-path. We
// compensate for such elided card-marks as follows:
// (a) Generational, non-concurrent collectors, such as
//     GenCollectedHeap(ParNew,DefNew,Tenured) and
//     ParallelScavengeHeap(ParallelGC, ParallelOldGC)
//     need the card-mark if and only if the region is
//     in the old gen, and do not care if the card-mark
//     succeeds or precedes the initializing stores themselves,
//     so long as the card-mark is completed before the next
//     scavenge. For all these cases, we can do a card mark
//     at the point at which we do a slow path allocation
//     in the old gen, i.e. in this call.
// (b) GenCollectedHeap(ConcurrentMarkSweepGeneration) requires
//     in addition that the card-mark for an old gen allocated
//     object strictly follow any associated initializing stores.
//     In these cases, the memRegion remembered below is
//     used to card-mark the entire region either just before the next
//     slow-path allocation by this thread or just before the next scavenge or
//     CMS-associated safepoint, whichever of these events happens first.
//     (The implicit assumption is that the object has been fully
//     initialized by this point, a fact that we assert when doing the
//     card-mark.)
// (c) G1CollectedHeap(G1) uses two kinds of write barriers. When a
//     G1 concurrent marking is in progress an SATB (pre-write-)barrier is
//     is used to remember the pre-value of any store. Initializing
//     stores will not need this barrier, so we need not worry about
//     compensating for the missing pre-barrier here. Turning now
//     to the post-barrier, we note that G1 needs a RS update barrier
//     which simply enqueues a (sequence of) dirty cards which may
//     optionally be refined by the concurrent update threads. Note
//     that this barrier need only be applied to a non-young write,
//     but, like in CMS, because of the presence of concurrent refinement
//     (much like CMS' precleaning), must strictly follow the oop-store.
//     Thus, using the same protocol for maintaining the intended
//     invariants turns out, serendepitously, to be the same for both
//     G1 and CMS.
// For any future collector, this code should be reexamined with
// that specific collector in mind, and the documentation above suitably
// extended and updated.
