Could I have a couple of volunteers to look at this change?
We decided that the terms "fully-young" and "partially-young" GCs were
awkward so we are renaming them to "young" and "mixed". This change not
only changes the external G1 output that uses these terms (i.e., GC log
and GC ergonomic decision log) but also renames all the occurrences of
those terms in the code itself (fields, methods, comments, etc.).
Initially, I was not going to do the latter but it turned out that the
changes were not too many. So it's good to make the code consistent with
our current terminology.
These are the most common fields / methods that I renamed:
_full_young_gcs -> _gcs_are_young
full_young_gcs() -> gcs_are_young()
set_full_young_gcs() -> set_gcs_are_young()
_should_revert_to_full_young_gcs -> _should_revert_to_young_gcs
_last_full_young_gc -> _last_young_gc
_last_young_gc_full -> _last_gc_was_young
The changeset also includes some very minor code cleanup (mainly
introduction of curly brackets in if-else statements).
