[concurrency-interest] DirectByteBuffers and reachabilityFence

If possible, it would be convenient if #reachabilityFence were defined as

public static void reachabilityFence(Object...  refs)

as there are many cases (e.g. Hans Boehm provides one in this thread) where
one would want to extend reachability to a set of objects to the same point. 
I wouldn't think that any ordering guarantee need to be preserved in the
case where multiple args were passed

I don't know the effect that might have upon the compiler
