  looks good.

Could you please

- add comments to the new method declarations in G1CollectedHeap? Also I
find the newline between remove_self_forwarding_pointers() and
restore_preserved_marks() a bit strange, I would expect them to be
grouped together, not restore_after_evac_failure() and

- regularize newlines between the constructor and the work method for
G1ParRemoveSelfForwardPtrsTask and G1RestorePreservedMarksTask?

Thanks for moving OopAndMarkOop.

I do not need a re-review for these changes.
