> In order to be able safely release resources on VM shutdown, DRLVM tries to stop all
remaining running daemon threads.
> The stopping algorithm cannot terminate deadlocked threads, i.e. threads blocked on MONITORENTER
instruction,
> if monitors are fat (i.e. MONITORENTER eventually translates to EnterCriticalSection
on Windows, or pthread_mutex_lock on Linux).
> The attached test NoShutdown.java demonstrates the behaviour.
> The possible solution is to use OS-level suspension / signals to suspend daemon threads,
without necessarily terminating them,
> because the original purpose is to prevent them from running simultaneously with VM shutdown
sequence.
