The patch is a prerequisite of concurrent CLD evacuation (JDK-8226310).
By moving root scanner for SH::object_iterate() out of generic root 
scanner, we can enforce stricter restriction on this specialized 
scanner. In particular, it should not clear CLDG's claim mask and should 
use _claim_none to iterate CLDG to avoid interfering concurrent CLDG
