6784849: par compact - old/new address assertions are too strong
Change the assertions that check before compaction/after
compaction addresses to handle the case when data is moved
from a space at lower addresses to a different space at higher
addresses. Currently, this only occurs with the survivor
spaces, when to_space < from_space.
6786188: par compact - "SplitALot" stress mode should fill to_space
Update ParallelOldGCSplitALot so compaction occasionally sees
objects in both from_space and to_space. This helped diagnose
Neither of the above affect any product code.
