As part of an attempt to make it easier for G1 to contain multiple
collector policies I suggest that the collection set code should be
moved out of the current G1 collector policy class into a class of its own.
I've tried to hold back on doing further cleanups in this patch in order
to make it easier to review the changes.
I do have some ideas on how the collection set code could be further
cleaned up but I'm not sure if I will have time to test them properly
I've also split the change into three webrevs in the version1 directory:
webrev_1 consists of moving the code and changing code accessing
collection set related methods
webrev_2 consists of renaming almost all methods in the new class to not
contain redundant collection set naming
webrev_3 restores the functionality for collector policy extensions to
hook into collection set selection.
Testing: JPRT, RBT GC testing.
