Looks good.

Good cleanup as it is. If you want to take it further I would personally 
prefer to remove the default values for the parameters:

  135   bool apply_closure_to_completed_buffer(CardTableEntryClosure* cl,
  136                                          uint worker_i = 0,
  137                                          int stop_at = 0,
  138                                          bool during_pause = false);

Both callers of apply_closure_to_completed_buffer() pass values for 
worker_ and stop_at. And the "during_pause" is used to assert the state 
of the call, so it is a bit odd that callers don't have to explicitly 
pass this state.

Just a thought. I'm fine with the change as you proposed it too since it 
is a clear improvement.
