This is a followup of JDK-8255847.

In early versions of Shenandoah, it marked through weak roots when class unloading is disabled. This is no longer the case. 

After moving weak roots (except that JVMTI weak root) processing to concurrent phase for concurrent GC, only STW GCs (degenerated GC and full GC) need to process concurrent weak roots at pause.
