------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The member name _span_discoverer, used by several of the collectors,
might be confusing; it's not discovering spans.  I'm not sure what a
better name might be though.  _span_based_discoverer?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
src/hotspot/share/gc/g1/g1FullCollector.hpp
  47 class G1FullGCSubjectToDiscoveryClosure: public BoolObjectClosure {
  48 public:
  49   bool do_object_b(oop p) {
  50     return (p != NULL);
  51   }
  52 };

I think no null check is needed here, and that p could instead be
asserted to be non-NULL, because Full-GC is discovery_is_atomic.  This
is similar to the young/mixed gc case
(G!STWSubjectToDiscoveryClosure), and different from the cm case.
That would better match the _always_subject_to_discovery name too.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
src/hotspot/share/gc/shared/referenceProcessor.hpp
 489   ReferenceProcessorSpanMutator(ReferenceProcessor* rp,
 490                                 MemRegion span):
 491     _rp(rp), _discoverer(span) {
 492     _old_discoverer = rp->is_subject_to_discovery_closure();
 493     rp->set_is_subject_to_discovery_closure(&_discoverer);
 494   }

Why is _old_discoverer initialized in the body rather than the
initializer list.

Also, formatting makes it hard to spot where the initializer list ends
and the body begins.
