Hi Chris, Per,

Shenandoah has the same problem, for the same reasons. And I'm not
convinced that G1 is safe either, at least with
-XX:+ClassUnloadingWithConcurrentMark.

In my opinion, this whole code section needs to be rewritten to use
something like CollectedHeap::object_iterate() (which is used by other
similar external code like JVMTI for heapdumping/walking). Simply
assuming a certain object layout is not very sustainable IMO.
