    This closes #63
commit dc56c144cace1d9faa70e857ae98596cfee2329d
Author: Nick Wellnhofer <>
Date:   2016-03-10T14:11:36Z

    Implement dtors for Class and Method
    Only for internal use. Destructors of immortal types won't be invoked
    via DECREF, so they must be called directly.

    Start to make Class_bootstrap thread-safe
    Use Atomic_cas_ptr to write
    - global class pointer
    - class name
    - class method array

    Make bootstrap_parcel thread-safe
    Remove bootstrap_inheritance.
    Add bootstrap_internal which invokes Class_bootstrap and parcel_init only
    for a single parcel.
    Detect inheritance cycles in Class_bootstrap.

    Make cfish_init_parcel thread-safe
    Initialize globals with compare-and-swap.

    Test idempotence of bootstrap process

    Keep CLASS->obj_alloc_size at 0
    This makes sure that Init_Obj doesn't reset any values when bootstrapping.

commit 8b71db60c361fde4135e7b16b4e018a48bae1d2f

    Introduce struct cfish_ParcelSpec
    Change Class_bootstrap to take a single pointer to struct

commit 25f58a6a5267ba8b33bbe00f8a25fa58c490e585
Author: Nick Wellnhofer <>

    Replace parcel_id with ParcelSpec pointer
    This makes the check whether a class is in the same parcel thread-safe.

> The Clownfish bootstrap process isn't thread-safe. For a lock-free solution:
> - Class_bootstrap must set the global class pointer at the very end, possibly destroying
the class if another thread set the pointer before.
> - The runtime inheritance cycle detection must be reworked, or simply left out. It only
protects from a really contrived scenario.
> - Probably other things I missed.
> We could also consider a global lock using a locking facility provided by the host language.
