I think it won't get any better.

Either we have O(log(N)) updates because we have to update
hierarchical structure to speed up GC scanning (to get it to
O(Mlog(N)), where M is a number of updated cells), or we have O(N)

As far as I can tell, other systems (Java, for example) suffer from
that problem as well.
