what about Azul's Zing JVM?

As a gross oversimplification their GC is concurrent to mutator (java)
threads but is mostly pauseless (they still pause at times but only very
briefly) because they use read barriers. This means that if a mutator
thread reads memory that's been relocated, they trap this condition at read
time, fix up the pointer (mutator does this itself), and continue on. Last
I heard this approach required azul's os support for bulk in/mapping of
pagetable entries, and required a Linux patch for x86 to do the same (but
it wasn't accepted into mainline kernel).
What's interesting is whether hotspot has any plans to do something similar?
