Hi all,

this small patch refactors how G1ParRemoveSelfForwardPtrsTask visits
the regions that need self-fowarding pointers removed. An new method,
apply_to_regions, is introduced, which makes it a bit easier to
eventually use G1ParRemoveSelfForwardPtrsTask to remove self-fowarding
pointers not only from the collection set.

Enhancement:

Webrev:

Testing:
JPRT

Thanks,
Erik
