Please review this patch to fix an issue in ZBarrierSetC2.

This problem was spotted when running an updated version of test/hotspot/jtreg/vmTestbase/gc/gctests/PhantomReference/phantom001/phantom001.java, which used `PhantomReference.refersTo()` (see JIRA).

The root cause of the problem is that `set_barrier_data()` in `zBarrierSetC2.cpp` only checks for `ON_WEAK_OOP_REF` and otherwise defaults to `ON_STRONG_OOP_REF`. With the introduction of `Reference.refersTo()` and `PhantomReference.refersTo()` it should also check for `ON_PHANTOM_OOP_REF` and `AS_NO_KEEPALIVE`, but that was missed. As a result, we generate calls to the wrong load barrier type.

  * Tier1-7 using ZGC on Linux/x86.
  * 100+ iterations of test/hotspot/jtreg/vmTestbase/gc/gctests/PhantomReference/phantom001/phantom001.java (updated version)
  * Manual ad-hoc testing to verify that we generate the correct load barrier.
