RFR (M): 8212206: Refactor AdaptiveSizePolicy to separate out code related to GC overhead

After offline discussion with Jiangli, we think it is better to just remove
this comment block.
The reason is that full GCs due to metaspace expansion will not take the
code path to execute AdaptiveSizePolicy::check_gc_overhead_limit(), because
of the check for AdaptiveSizePolicy::should_update_promo_stats().
