Hi all,

  can I have reviews for this tiny change that removes G1 doing some
duplicate work?

Due to benign races we can sometimes get references that have already
been evacuated from the task queue. 

Current code in G1ParScanThreadState::do_oop_evac() needlessly applies
follow-up calculations (remembered set, humonguous liveness) on this
already evacuated reference - that all has been done the first time
around already. 

Just exit the method if we detect such a task.

CR:

Webrev:

Testing:
local jtreg run of gc passes, some benchmarks

Thanks,
  Thomas
