The generation array removal enabled several other cleanups. I have several 
changes in queue to perform these cleanups one at a time.

In this change the methods next_gen(), prev_gen() and get_gen() are removed and 
calls are replaced with explicit calls to young_gen() and old_gen().

Please have a look.
