The change looks good in general but the closures here should not be 
prefixed with PS but rather PC, since they are used by the parallel 
compact algorithm.

Some additional comments:

The new versions of follow_class_loader and follow_contents have been 
moved to the end of the file, is there any reason for that otherwise I 
would like them to be in the old location right with the other 

Also the indentation of the closures should be fixed, use 2 space 
instead of 4.

PSReferenceProcessor should be called PCReferenceProcessor and I also 
think you should remove the default value in the constructor.
