Hi Thomas,

Looks good.
I have same request as Tom for adding some explanation.

And I have one more question.
You are using '_g1h->workers()' and '_parallel_workers' for 
'clear_all_count_data()'. And their total workers will be 
'ParallelGCThread' and 'ConcGCThread' as a default. So how about using 
WorkGang::total_workers() instead of '_max_worker_id'?
