min_fill_size() is static and cannot be overridden by GC. obj_size()
from JDK-8211270 could be used if we'd pass a specific object. I guess
we could make a better abstraction like what Erik suggested in the other

virtual size_t cell_size(size_t obj_size) { return obj_size; }

and this could be called by JVMT and whitebox (JDK-8211270) with
obj->size(), and by min_fill_size() with the static minimum obj size,
and the GC would translate it to the cell size. The obj_size() from
JDK-8211270 would then be removed and we'd have a single abstraction for
this. Want me to make that change?

Do you agree with the rest of this change? Because there's some
significant changes how TLAB and PLAB calculate their alloc reserves in
there too.
