>>> The load of previous value in G1 pre-barrier code (method GraphKit::g1_write_barrier_pre()) does not have control. It is from the time when G1 code was merged into Hotspot sources. I can only speculate that it was done to allow commoning with a preceding normal load if it exists and to avoid generation of 2 loads.
