Please review this change to remove G1AllocationContext which no longer
G1AllocationContext was a very intrusive extension point which made it
possible to have allocations mapped to a specific context, keeping this
context over GCs. To support this the allocation-contexts are passed
around in the G1 code base and it adds a fair bit of complexity. The
internal code making use of this has been removed and this allow us to
clean up G1 by removing all use of the G1AllocationContext.
The change is pretty straight forward, the intent is to remove all
references to G1AllocationContext.
