C1 had passed incorrect new value to the post_barrer() in Unsafe.getAndSetObject() intrinsic.
Instead of the new value, on which G1 executes a bunch filters it passed the old value. That caused sporadic barrier omissions and missing rset entries as a result.
Huge thanks to Mikael Gerdin for helping to track this hard to reproduce issue.
