      Description

      The ServiceThread has a list of all the OopStorage objects it needs to visit to perform cleanup actions (calling delete_empty_block) on them. Unfortunately, it's very easy to forget (or not know) the ServiceThread needs to be updated when a new OopStorage object is added. Some mechanism is needed to address this. Such a mechanism needs to be careful not to interfere with "anonymous" storage objects created as part of gtests.
