Thanks for providing the incremental patches, it made the patches much 
easier to review.

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-remove_SharedHeap_set_barrier_set/

All three heap implementations perform the same sequence:
+  _barrier_set = bs;
+  oopDesc::set_bs(bs);

I'd prefer if we could move that to a function in CollectedHeap.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-move_post_initialized_and_ref_init/

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-move_post_initialized_and_ref_init/src/share/vm/gc_implementation/g1/g1CollectedHeap.hpp.udiff.html

+  // Does operations required after initialization has been done.
+  void post_initialize();
+
    // Initialize weak reference processing.
    virtual void ref_processing_init();

The ref_processing_init doesn't have to be virtual anymore.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-remove_SharedHeap_space_iterate/

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-remove_SharedHeap_space_iterate/src/share/vm/gc_implementation/g1/g1CollectedHeap.cpp.udiff.html

-void G1CollectedHeap::space_iterate(SpaceClosure* cl) {
-  SpaceClosureRegionClosure blk(cl);
-  heap_region_iterate(&blk);
-}

SpaceClosureRegionClosure isn't used anymore and can be removed.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-remove_SharedHeap_oop_iterate/

CollectedHeap::oop_iterate and CollectedHeap::oop_iterate_no_header are 
only used by CMS. We might want to move those functions to GenCollectedHeap.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-remove_SharedHeap_space_containing/

The few usages of space_containing in G1 could be replaced with 
heap_region_containing.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-move_workers/

+  if (UseConcMarkSweepGC) {
+    _workers = new FlexibleWorkGang("GC Thread", ParallelGCThreads,
+                            /* are_GC_task_threads */true,
+                            /* are_ConcurrentGC_threads */false);
+    _workers->initialize_workers();
+  } else {
+    _workers = NULL;
+  }
  }

Could you add a comment that the else statement is for UseSerialGC, 
which doesn't use workers.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076454/webrev.00-product-fix/

This is an unrelated change.


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076289/webrev.00-move_StrongRootsScope/

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076289/webrev.00-move_StrongRootsScope/src/share/vm/runtime/thread.hpp.udiff.html

+  // If the client meats this spec, then "thread claim parity" will have
+  // the following properties:
+  //   a) to return a different value than was returned before the last
+  //      call to change_strong_roots_parity, and
+  //   c) to never return a distinguished value (zero) with which such
+  //      task-claiming variables may be initialized, to indicate "never
+  //      claimed".

Could you remove this section? The comments already describe what needs 
to be known.

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076289/webrev.00-move_StrongRootsScope/src/share/vm/utilities/workgroup.hpp.udiff.html

The comment you moved is too unfocused to aid in the understanding of 
the different parts of the code, and other comments already explain a 
lot of what's said in this file. Could you either remove it, reword it 
or move parts of it to the files where they belong?

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076289/webrev.00-move_StrongRootsScope/src/share/vm/memory/strongRootsScope.hpp.html
-
   30 // Some collectors will perform "process_strong_roots" in parallel.
   31 // Such a call will involve claiming some fine-grained tasks, such as
   32 // scanning of threads and code blobs.
   33 // Claiming of these tasks requires that sequential code calls
   34 // initialization methods to set the claiming code in the right
   35 // state for parallel task claiming.
   36 // StrongRootsScope is a way to capture such setup code to make
   37 // sure that it is executed in the correct way.

Could this comment be reworded into one paragraph?


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076289/webrev.00-move_MarkScope/

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076289/webrev.00-move_MarkScope/src/share/vm/memory/strongRootsScope.hpp.udiff.html

Add include allocation.hpp.

Could you move the initialization lists up one line?


http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~brutisso/8076452/webrev.00/

This is missing changes to the SA.

I think a few of the includes to collectedHeap.hpp are unnecessary.
