that is of course part of it.  

It found two issues:  
- RemoveForwardedPointerClosure::do_object() needs to be moved to the  
preservedMarks.inline.hpp as it uses oopDesc::is_forwarded() and  
init(). Then also oop.inline.hpp needs to be included there.  

- PreservedMarksSet::reclaim() needs to call  
~Padded<Preservedmarks>(), not just ~PreservedMarks.
