Subject [jira] Updated: (HARMONY-5098) Support for uncompressed heap references in gc
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2007 02:59:43 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-5098?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Ilya Berezhniuk updated HARMONY-5098:

    Attachment: gc_ref_06.patch

Here is updated patch for GC_GEN, VM and build system (gc_ref_06.patch).

Comments to the patch:

1. GC_CC is not corrected according to changes in object layout. But looks like GC_CC does
not work anyway - I've got the same assertion with my patch as without patch.

2. GCHelper.java was duplicated because uncompressed version should load different native
library in its static initializer. Separate class can be used, but it will involve duplicating
native methods with new mangling.

3. I have not uncommented check_compression() as Rana suggested, because now we actually need
not 'supports_compression' function, but 'support_uncompressed', or something like 'get_compression_modes'.

4. Build system was corrected so that both GC_GEN instances are built only for runtime-switch
mode. Only one proper GC_GEN library is built for compile-time selected compressed and uncompressed

5. The places in GC_GEN, where compiler produced a warning for returning integer value as
Boolean, were changed to constructs like (<integer value> != 0).

6. gc.RunFinalizersOnExitTest and sometimes thread.InfiniteFinalizer fail with this patch.
I can't find a cause with my weak knowledge of GC internals.

7. HARMONY-5091 patch should be used for testing this patch in uncompressed mode when using
default JIT or OPT. Interpreter and JET work fine without HARMONY-5091 patch.

The results of testing on x86_64 with 'build test':
(Note: JIT/OPT tests pass in uncompressed mode with HARMONY-5091 patch, and in compressed
mode without this patch - looks like HARMONY-5091-v0.1.patch enables uncompressed mode but
damages compressed mode.)

---- Windows/x86_64 uncompressed ----
All tests are passed excluding gc.RunFinalizersOnExitTest

---- Windows/x86_64 compressed ----
All tests are passed

---- Linux/x86_64 uncompressed ----
All tests are passed excluding gc.RunFinalizersOnExitTest on all EMs and thread.InfiniteFinalizer
on interpreter

---- Linux/x86_64 compressed ----
All tests are passed excluding gc.RunFinalizersOnExitTest

---- Windows/x86 (uncompressed) ----
All tests are passed
