This means that we can change the super type to BasicOopIterateClosure and narrow the type used by full_process_roots.
>> The changed closures are created statically, and could therefore not use the appropriate OopsInGenClosure constructor. A dummy constructor and a a post-creation step involving calling set_orig_generation was instead used. Since none of this is needed after the CMS removal, I've removed those parts as well.
