Just one note, if we run with `UseDynamicNumberOfGCThreads` the PLAB size might still be "resized" between GCs if they use different number of threads. This is still an improvement since the old value is wrong and will give a way to small PLAB size. But we might want to look at a solution that will always return a fixed PLAB size with `-ResizePLAB`.
