Hi,

In CardTableBarrierSet, we sometimes need fencing due to the card table 
being scanned concurrently when using CMS with pre-cleaning. Rather than 
explicitly checking for those CMS flags in the generic 
CardTableBarrierSet class, it is preferrable to check the CardTable 
scanned_concurrently() property which reflects that better
