The ParallelGC collector supports scavenging in breadth-first order, but this is disabled by default and there are no known users of it. The code should be removed.
The default scavenge order is depth first, but the option -XX:-UseDepthFirstScavengeOrder can be used to switch to breadth first. The option would have to be accepted (but ignored) for some time to maintain compatibility.
