Hi Stefan,

Nice! This one has been at the back of my head for a while. This looks good.

One thing though. I wonder if the CMSCardTable constructor should take that argument whether the table is scanned concurrently or not (when pre-cleaning is enabled). Perhaps that logic could be in the constructor of CMSCardTable instead. I tend to think it belongs in the constructor. It is not a strong preference though, so I will leave it as your call, and will not need another webrev.
