Very long safepoint pauses for RevokeBias

I work on the Presto project, which is a distributed SQL engine, and
intermittently (roughly once an hour) I see very long application stopped
times (as reported by
   -XX:+PrintGCApplicationStoppedTime). I enabled safepoint statistics, and
see that the pause seems to be coming from a RevokeBias safepoint.

Any suggestions as to how I can debug this? I already tried adding
-XX:+PerfDisableSharedMem, in case this was related to

See below for safepoint statistics:

         vmop                    [threads: total initially_running
wait_to_block]    [time: spin block sync cleanup vmop] page_trap_count
