  some comments:

- Introduction of G1PLABWasteStat fine with me, although I would not add
an extra type just for two values to be returned.

- I would prefer to use a noun in the method that returns the
statistics, i.e. waste() instead of wasted(). This can be ignored if you
prefer it the other way.

- in parGCAllocBuffer.cpp:105 there is an extra comma in

Otherwise looks good.
