I agree that this can be removed, and there is even more code that 
should go. The call from each collected heap:
src/hotspot/share/gc/shared/genCollectedHeap.cpp:680:#ifdef TRACESPINNING
src/hotspot/share/gc/parallel/psScavenge.cpp:734:#ifdef TRACESPINNING
src/hotspot/share/gc/g1/g1CollectedHeap.cpp:1135:#ifdef TRACESPINNING
src/hotspot/share/gc/g1/g1CollectedHeap.cpp:3143:#ifdef TRACESPINNING

Otherwise, looks good,
