RFR: 8143847: Remove REF_CLEANER reference category

Since you change vmStructs.cpp it's a good idea to run some SA test just to make
sure there is no use of the deleted field in there. There's a bunch of jtreg
tests in hotspot/test/serviceability/sa/. Last time I checked these were not run
Slightly unrelated: Is it worth to make number_of_subclasses_of_ref() slightly
more robust by adding a "REF_LAST" or similar to use in there? I guess we don't
intend to add more reference types, but it is easy to forget to update this
method if a new type is added last in the enum.
