RFR: 8256416: ZGC: Lower ZMarkCompleteTimeout

With JEP-376 integrated, the ZMarkCompleteTimeout now essentially dictates how long the max GC pause will be in ZGC. Since our pauses are now on the order of 50-100us I propose we lower the ZMarkCompleteTimeout to 200us (instead of 1ms).

Running the usual benchmarks, I can see no difference in number of mark continues, which suggests 200us is long enough to handle all common cases.
