      Description

      Shenandoah's runtime barriers for SATB pre-date the GC interface, and have been very coarsly fitted into the new GC interfaces. It leaves room for improvements:
      - Rename methods to make more sense
      - Group enqueueing barrier methods together
      - Make them inlinable, including the ultimate enqueue() method
      - Avoid barriers on DEST_UNINITIALIZED pre-barriers
      - Benefit from static resolution of decorators when possible, and don't generate barriers at all in those cases

      As a bonus, add SATB and traversal store-value barriers to native oop stores. This is not doing anything now, but will enable concurrent roots scanning in the near future.
