StablePtrs should be organized by generation for efficient minor collections

Currently, stable pointers are all in one giant pointer table (see markStablePtrTable); this results in pretty bad GC behavior when you create a lot of stable pointers (Peaker has a test-case which he thinks is suffering due to repeated traversal of the stable pointers list.) We should partition them up into generations like we do for mutable lists. There might be some trickiness keeping the table up-to-date after GCs.
