RFR: JDK-8213746: GC/C2 abstraction for C2 matcher

 There's a bunch of GC specific code in matcher.cpp that should better
be abstracted into BarrierSetC2 and GC specific subclasses.

Some notes about the proposed change:
- It hooks GC up to both the 'visit' and 'post-visit' phase of the node
iteration loops. ZGC currently inserts into visit, and Shenandoah
requires both vist and post-visit. The latter is needed because
Shenandoah provides its own set of CAS nodes which need to be binary-treed.
- There's also a hook in post_store_load_barrier() which Shenandoah
needs, again for its own set of CAS nodes
- The switches are factored out into their own methods to make the GC
hookup clearer and easier to manage.
