Thanks for the review.

I don't know the internals of GCC well enough to explain this issue, but it
is related to function template instantiation due to
I'm looking at objdump output of g1BarrierSet.cpp in order to diagnose a
performance difference between Clang and GCC builds. Once
g1ConcurrentMark.inline.hpp gets transitively included, g1BarrierSet.o
contains many instantiations of function templates unrelated to the
G1BarrierSet class.
