Please review this small fix which changes the names of the GC threads 
to be shorter and more descriptive. There is a limit on 16 characters 
including the terminating null byte for this name, since 
pthread_set_name_np() is used. This change will make it easier to debug, 
as these names shows up in the debugger.
