  could you please move line 451 of taskqueue.hpp in the obviously
following patch that adds the ShenandoahTaskTerminator to the
Shenandoah specific code? It does not seem to fit here.

Otherwise it looks good. Btw, feel free to take over JDK-8204947 - I
just did not get the time due to other more important changes.
