Hi Lin,

Adding in hotspot-gc-dev as they need to see how this interacts with GC 
worker threads, and whether it needs to be extended beyond G1.

I happened to spot one nit when browsing:


+   virtual bool run_par_heap_inspect_task(KlassInfoTable* cit,
+                                          BoolObjectClosure* filter,
+                                          size_t* missed_count,
+                                          size_t thread_num) {
+     return NULL;
