Subject [drlvm][JIT] does back-branch polling call jvmti_safe_point?
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2007 23:41:20 GMT
A question for Harmony compiler developers.  I have been tracing through the
code with the debugger.  It looks like the JIT calls jvmti_safe_point on
back-branch polling.  And the poll variable that is tested to determine if a
callout is required is hythread_t.request.  Is this correct?

If the above is correct, does anyone know why the back-branch polling
support routine is called jvmti_safe_point?  Is this support routine somehow
tied to JVMTI?
