  some further notes:

- maybe remove the "up and down" from the CR title. To me it just
sounds strange, and whenever I see this title, I ask myselves what
making a remembered set go "up" or "down" means.

Note that changes here may make JDK-8147087 unreproducable. Can you
check that this is not the case if you change something here?

It would be nice to use this test as a fairly good reproducer for JDK
