Offline discussion concluded that the assertion added by JDK-8237369 is 
not reliable.

For piggyback reference updating cycle, has_forwarded_objects flag is 
carried into next GC cycle and Shenandoah resets marking bitmap 
concurrently just before new GC cycle. So, there is a short period 
without reliable marking bitmap, could trigger false assertion.
