[ two additional remarks, rest sent in PM ]

1) docs

Some recent changes, like reversing the scavenge direction isn't yet
synced to documentation.

2) pmc_body alignment

* Gc_gmc_hdr.flags is unused, after removal, the header is two words
  sized
* the body of Float PMCs, or specifically the 'double' inside it, needs
  alignment at a 2-word boundary. Eventually we should have one or two
  vtable flag bits that state 8 or 16 byte alignment for the body.
