I have two comments:
- instead of using multiple inheritance, can you instead have the
  G1MMUTracer as a field in G1NewTracer and G1OldTracer? Then you can
  have a getter to the field.
- in G1MMUTracer, can you have the function report_mmu not take a
  G1MMUTracker* but instead have two additional double parameters, one
  for time_slice and one for max_gc_time? This way the tracers don't
  need to know about G1MMUTracker.
