Please review this enhancement that moves some of weak root processing 
into concurrent phase whenever possible.

When concurrent class unloading is enabled, the weak roots that backed 
by OopStorage can be processed in concurrent phase, as Shenandoah native 
LRB can properly resolve the object and hide dead oops from mutators.
