Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for looking at this.

Can you clarify your concern? Are you talking about a load of the mark
word? Or is it the load of the prototype header in

> I don't see offset check in is_new_object_mark_load(). How it known it is load from *mark word*?

It checks that the address input of the load is an allocation. If it is
not at offset 0, there is an AddP between the load and the allocation
and is_new_object_mark_load() returns false on this graph shape.
