> Hi, attached is a patch for GCv5 which achieves good parallelization scalability in real
SMP machine. It can works in generational or nongenerational mode. I have tested it on a Intel
Tulsa platform which has four Pentium-D dual-core processors (totally 8 cores). It performs
pretty well. With more processors and larger heap size, this parallel GC can demonstrate more
> There are two dependences:
> 1. To fully exploit this GC's adavantage, helper inlining should be enabled for it. It
depends on Harmony-2652 which inlines write barrier. 
> 2. Some JIT optimizations do not implement write barrer for reference field update. These
opts have to be disabled to make the generational mode work.
> At the same time before the two dependences are resolved, people still can play with
it in non-generational mode. But the performance will be impacted seriously without helper
> Dear commiter, please help to integrate it into Harmony SVN. Please apply the patch at
working_vm directory.
> Thanks,
