Subject Re: [drlvm][gc]about MARK_BIT_FLIPPING

Because generational mode doesn't need that. It's used because, in
non-gen mode, the MOS is traced as well, their mark bit is set and
kept there till next collection. To tell their status, you need
another bit (the flipped bit).

Please refer to my blog article "[Harmony GC Internal] Mark bit
design", at http://xiao-feng.blogspot.com/2008/01/harmony-gc-internal-mark-bit-design.html
