Subject Re: [DRLVM] 64-bit support with compressed pointer
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2007 06:33:23 GMT
Did you check that it works on 64 bit mode with uncomressed references.
I remember some time ago there were issues like hard coded compressed
references used in JIT (or probably somewhere else) in 64bit mode.

Best regards,
Aleksey.
