Sgen see the small major heap as a list of object blocks. We create, using
the threads stack and other sources, a queue of potential pointer, sort
them and then, since it is sorted, we assign to a block the index of the
queue where we can find the first pointer in the block area. After that,
each block scan its queue area comparing to its object list, marking them.
The function that "do" this work is mark_pinned_objects_in_block in

Sorry for my terrible english, I hope you can understand it.
