The intent for the patch is okay.

I think comments need to be updated, for example:

After final-mark:

  // Final mark might have reclaimed some immediate garbage, kick cleanup to reclaim
  // the space. This would be the last action if there is nothing to evacuate.

After update-refs:

  // Update references freed up collection set, kick the cleanup to reclaim the space.

I think this is the minor performance enhancement, and as such it should be deferred until first
12u. So, let's push this to jdk/jdk, let it be tested, and then we'll do the backport to
jdk-updates/jdk12u, when that arrives.
