That would be nice. G1 already uses the ReservedMarks stack, and
implements the ReservedMarksSet by hand. It should be an easy change.

Note that G1 already parallelizes mark restoration, so you would need
to implement a G1 specific restoration method (just calling the
existing two methods or so that do the work).

Yes, sure.
