I would like to contribute a fix for a bug in parallel old gc. The bug can cause long gc pauses, because work stealing while marking does not work as ParallelTaskTerminator peeks the wrong task queue set.

A microbenchmark that produces an object graph with large linear parts consistently shows 3x shorter gc pauses with the fix (see bug report). In a similar synthetic test the bug sporadically caused pauses 10x longer than average.

The change needs to be sponsored as well, please.

Thanks, Richard.
