        Description

        In some recent SPECjbb2015 runs with -XX:+AlwaysPreTouch G1 used only a single thread for pretouching hundreds of GB of Java heap which takes a long time.

        Eg.

        [0.160s][debug][gc,heap ] Running G1 PreTouch with 1 workers for 420 work units pre-touching 450971566080B.
        [136.307s][debug][gc,heap ] Running G1 PreTouch with 1 workers for 6 work units pre-touching 7046430720B.
        [140.038s][debug][gc,heap ] Running G1 PreTouch with 1 workers for 6 work units pre-touching 7046430720B.
        [144.142s][debug][gc,heap ] Running G1 PreTouch with 1 workers for 1 work units pre-touching 880803840B.
        [144.400s][debug][gc,heap ] Running G1 PreTouch with 1 workers for 1 work units pre-touching 880803840B.
        [144.867s][debug][gc,heap ] Running G1 PreTouch with 1 workers for 1 work units pre-touching 880803840B.

        Fix this regression.
