RFR 8225590: Shenandoah: Refactor ShenandoahClassLoaderDataRoots API to mirror CLDG API

ShenandoahClassDataRoots only exports a generic CLDG iteration API 
(roots_cld_do), which requires caller to pass in proper strong closure 
and/or weak closure, while CLDG has two more explicit APIs:
always_strong_cld_do() and cld_do() for iterating strong class loader 
data and all class loader data.

This refactor converts ShenandoahClassDataRoots API to mirror the two 
more explicit CLDG APIs. I think, should result more readable and less 
error prone code.
