        Description

        We're not fixing up all weak roots in final-traversal. But we have to, because weak roots are not scanned+evacuated at init-traversal, and may thus keep dangling pointers that would leak out to the next cycle. This can lead to heap corruption, crashes, etc.

        JDK-8230483 is most likely also related to that.
