 744 bool GenCollectedHeap::no_allocs_since_save_marks() {
 745   if (!_young_gen->no_allocs_since_save_marks()) {
 746     return false;
 747   }
 748   return _old_gen->no_allocs_since_save_marks();
 749 }

This looks rather contorted now.  Why not just

    _young_gen->no_allocs_since_save_marks() &&


Otherwise, looks good.
