[drlvm][jvmti] Thread.isAlive() is false in THREAD_STRAT event callback

                 Key: HARMONY-4389
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-4389
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: DRLVM
         Environment: Windows/x86, harmony-jdk-r553376
            Reporter: Ivan Popov

After applying patch HARMONY-2889 for JDWP agent the following JDWP stress tests:


still hangs on Harmony and pass on RI. The problem is in different behavior of j.l.Thread.isAlive()
while thread is suspended in THREAD_START callback. In RI isAlive()==true, in Harmony isAlive()==false.

In these tests debuggee application starts tested thread, which generates THREAD_START events,
and waits until isAlive()==true for this thread. Then it sends message to debugger and debugger
handles THREAD_START events and resumes tested thread. With RI this works fine, but with Harmony
isAlive() never returns true until thread is resumed in THREAD_START event, and test hangs.

I doubt if there is any requirement in classlib or JVMTI specifications which would clarify
this situation. However, it makes sense to follow RI's behavior. Otherwise, affected tests
should be modified.
