during testing of 8077144 I found that mark bitmap clearing can be
significantly sped up by not using that many threads.
A good conservative estimate (tends to use too many threads) that still
cuts mark bitmap clear time by >50% is to give each thread at least 1
MB of data to clear.
jprt, webrev, various performance tests
Depends on 8155232.
