~I think this is good~. The change does not compile on Linux due to a missing include to define `INCLUDE_PARALLELGC`

I filed CRs for the renaming of the static members in [JDK-8277372](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8277372)and looking into making card and BOT maximum size dependent on `ObjectAlignmentInBytes` in [JDK-8277373](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8277373)
