 I am doing a project which needs to make a system call at
monitor_enter bytecode and monitor_exit bytecode. The system call is
made by myself, which is used to inform the kernel of monitor events.
Currently, I inserted the system call at
ObjectSynchronizer::fast_enter(). Will it cause any problem since the
code comments say that the implementation is extremely sensitive to
race condition?
