Looks good, except a bit in Finalizer.printFinalizerQueue, specifically:
122 /* Clear stack slot containing this variable, to decrease
123 the chances of false retention with a conservative GC */
124 referent = null;
Peter already noted these lines are mis-indented.
However I’m not convinced that assignment is actually useful, since I think it can be optimized away.
