      Description

      If we allow promotion into the LOS, then large objects can be allocated into the regular nursery (rather than the PLOS), and subsequently copied into the LOS at collection time. This ameliorates the problem of RVM-619 Closed because we remove the PLOS (though we still have a nursery with a prescribed size, so the problem has not completely gone away).

      Note that his only affects non-reference arrays, since reference arrays are already pretenured directly into the LOS.
