I would like reviews for the following small patch.
Like the bug description says, the ParNewTracer is stack-allocated
during ParNewGeneration::collect(), forcing us to send the tracer as an
argument to functions that might need it. This patch moves the tracer,
and makes it a field in ParNewGeneration instead.
The change includes adding a getter for this field, even though it is
not used, however, future changes adding PLAB tracing  will require this.
