runtime: split data/bss into 4K chunks for scanning #8888
If we split data/bss into 4K chunks, then it will improve parallelization of scanning and make it more incremental (something we need for concurrent GC with GOMAXPROCS=1). I've done it once, but it was reverted during precision changes. When we have 1-bit/word pointer info, it will be trivial to restore: 1. Calculate number of 4K chunks. 2. Adjust scanning parfor boundary accordingly. 3. If a thread's parfor iteration index is data/bss scanning, it finds the relevant piece of data/bass and relevant piece of data/bss pointer info and scans only that piece.
