A gc initiated by the GC locker is always a young-only gc, even if a mixed gc phase was just about to start.

This of course throws away all recently acquired liveness information, and basically preventing space reclamation.

This is not required at all.
Merging this with JDK-8140597 since that is basically the same issue.

Setting ILW to P3 as this is a blocker for adaptive IHOP.
