> In the weak-LRB we currently return referents when it is 'marked', that is when it's either reachable strongly or through a finalizable object. This means a finalizable object can be resurrected by Reference.get(), which is wrong. Only truly strongly reachable objects should be returned by Reference.get() during weak-reference-processing. 
> Testing: hotspot_gc_shenandoah, tier1 & tier2 with -XX:+UseShenandoahGC
