Subject Re: [DRLVM][GCv5] patch for new LOS collector and finalizer/weakref support
Date Mon, 11 Dec 2006 07:42:18 GMT
Ivan, thanks for your quick review. Your two questions are good.
Basically the patches are for GCv5 only since we don't want to impact
any existing Harmony functionalities when GCv5 is not on. :-) At least
we want to control the impact to be minimal at the moment until we
have enough confidence. And yes, I agree with you that the coding
style should be improved, and actually that's in our plan. We'd like
to evolve the code base and probably with contributions from other
participants. The patches are supposed to be a start for further
