RFR: 8234974: Shenandoah: Do concurrent roots even when no evacuation is necessary

Shenandoah can short-cut a cycle when the collection set remains empty,
and doesn't dive into concurrent evacuation and updating refs phases
then. However, this currently also precludes concurrent roots processing
and concurrent class unloading. This is only a minor nuisance now
(effectively skipping class unloading for short-cut-cycles), but amounts
to a real bug when we're going to do weak-roots-cleaning concurrently too.
Can I please get a review?
