Hi Thomas,

This looks good to me.

One minor thing that I leave up to you to fix if you want to.

It seems more natural to me to pass an "is parallel" value to the 
constructor of G1StringSymbolTableUnlinkTask rather than have it look at 
G1CollectedHeap::use_parallel_gc_threads() itself to set the 
_do_in_parallel value.
