Shenandoah is not clearing soft-refs on a requested (by System.gc() or
implicitely) GC. We should do that. It is breaking
java/util/logging/Logger/bundleLeak/BundleTest.java that exects soft-
refs to evevtually be cleared by System.gc().

Bug:

Testing: hotspot_gc_shenandoah, tier1&2 with Shenandoah

Ok?

Thanks,
Roman
