  actually I would prefer if we had even more digits to identify them :)
In some cases there already are high three-digit number of threads in

I.e. shorten G1ConcRefine#%d to something like "G1Refine#%d" (or just
remove the "#" because the extra threads for refinement are always used
for concurrent refinement anyway.

I am not insisting on that, just mentioning this potential future
