Universe::initialize_heap() is kind of messy as it contains lots of #if 
INCLUDE_ALL_GCS, this patch tries to make that code a bit more readable. 
Also, all collectors except ParallelScavenge take their CollectorPolicy 
as an argument to the constructor. This patch aligns ParallelScavenge to 
this pattern to further make the code in initialize_heap() more readable.
