> Disabling of pinning of heap objects had negative performance impact for some work loads,
like xml processing.
> Here is a patch to enable pinning again.
> Pinning support improved:
>  * added handling for pin counter overflow.
>  * hashcode status bits and pin counter has placed in different bytes of object status
word to prevent any possibility of conflict
>  * pin counter updates are atomic while hashcode status updates are not.
> I have tested the code on following scenarios:
>    Live object is pinned in different threads and overflow pin counter
>    Objects are created and pinned in endless loop
>    Smoke tests
