Please review this change for:


For the mark-sweep full GCs we need to handle the adjust-closure special 
for InstanceRefKlass. Before this change this was done by having a 
special method for all *Klass, oop_ms_adjust_pointers and instead of 
calling oop_iterate(AdjustClosure) we called this method. Since it is 
only InstanceRefKlass that needs the special handling it would be nice 
to be able to use the normal oop_iterate code path and only special case 

This change removes all use of oop_ms_adjust_pointers and makes it 
possible to special handle InstanceRefKlass by defining a special 
ReferenceIterationMode for the closure in need of the special treatment. 
This technique can also be used to remove 
ExtendedOopClosure::apply_to_weak_ref_discovered_field (descirbed in 
JDK-8138888) and I plan to send out a review for this once this review 
is done. The fix for that issue is basically adding one more 
ReferenceIterationMode and define what it should do.
