      Description

        Currently, we set the safe-iteration-limit at start of update-refs-phase. This is subsequently used as limit for the linear scan in update-refs phase. However, with the strong invariant we can do better: we can set this limit at evac-start, because it is guaranteed that any reference that is written to the new fields is to-space and does not require updating.

        An exception is new allocations for evacuated objects: those still require updates and thus require special handling.
