The bug is that we could skip marking a pointer in the initial heap snapshot of IGC, and then try to mark it later. It turns out most of these things should not be marked anyway because they are weak pointers.

Here's how I would write this. Please integrate them as you see fit.

This function marks Ion code objects that must be kept alive if there is any Ion code currently running. These pointers are marked at the start of incremental GC. Entering Ion code in the middle of an incremental GC triggers a read barrier on both these pointers, so they will still be marked in that case.
