1) Added assertion to catch evacuation after completion of heap 
traversal. This should help catch the bug demonstrated in sh-jdk11 w/o 

2) Retire TLAB/GCLAB after completion of heap traversal. Current code 
retires TLAB/GCLAB at the beginning final traversal, but STW traversal 
still uses GCLAB to evacuate remaining objects.

3) Added comments regarding why need to retire TLAB/GCLAB, even we don't 
need heap to be parsable.
