Hi Xiaofeng,

The current snapshot under testing is r639357. As I see you turned on
semispace algorithm at r639530. The difference between r639357 and
r639530 is only your update: "turn on semispace algorithm as the
default minor collection GC"

So we can build and test r639530 snapshot and compare with results for
r639357. That may help you to detect regressions caused by the update.
