The filtering is not needed at all since G1ParPushHeapRSClosure already does a collection set check so I removed the filtering altogether.

Ouch.  Nice find.  Looks good, other than the broken comment below.

  96     // Last object. Need to do pass a MemRegion here too.

Broken comment.  Previous comment was
 135     // Last object. Need to do dead-obj filtering here too.

which I think was correct.
