Can you move the value "32" to a constant? Both stringTable.cpp and 
symbolTable.cpp define a
const int ClaimChunkSize = 32;
That seems like a reasonable pattern, but you should probably make it a 
static global or scope it inside G1HotCardCache.

Otherwise it looks good.

For the record I asked Marcus about the value "32" and he had done some 
experiments to come up with the number.
