Hi Kim,

The fix looks good to me too.
Thank you for taking care about this!

One comment below...

I was puzzled too but seems to understand it now.

The .xsl code limits these function to be defined with the attribute 
and also (no 'phase' attribute or phase="live" or phase="start"):

<xsl:template match="function" mode="transition">
   . . .
     <xsl:when test="count(@callbacksafe)=0 or 
       <xsl:text>if (this_thread == NULL || 
!this_thread->is_Java_thread()) {</xsl:text>
         <xsl:when test="count(@phase)=0 or contains(@phase,'live') or 
           <xsl:text>if (this_thread == NULL || 
(!this_thread->is_Java_thread() && 
!this_thread->is_VM_thread())) {</xsl:text>
           <xsl:text>if (!this_thread->is_Java_thread()) {</xsl:text>
   . . .

This is the list of functions defined in the jvmti.xml with the 
attribute callbacksafe="safe":
% grep -r callbacksafe jvmti.xml | grep function
     <function id="Allocate" jkernel="yes" phase="any" 
callbacksafe="safe" impl="notrace" num="46">
     <function id="Deallocate" jkernel="yes" phase="any" 
callbacksafe="safe" impl="notrace" num="47">
     <function id="CreateRawMonitor" phase="onload" callbacksafe="safe" 
     <function id="DestroyRawMonitor" phase="onload" callbacksafe="safe" 
     <function id="RawMonitorEnter" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" 
impl="innative notrace" num="33">
     <function id="RawMonitorExit" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" 
impl="innative notrace" num="34">
     <function id="RawMonitorWait" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" 
impl="innative notrace" num="35">
     <function id="RawMonitorNotify" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" 
impl="notrace" num="36">
     <function id="RawMonitorNotifyAll" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" 
impl="notrace" num="37">
     <function id="GetCurrentThreadCpuTimerInfo" callbacksafe="safe"  
impl="innative notrace" phase="start" num="134">
     <function id="GetCurrentThreadCpuTime" callbacksafe="safe" 
impl="innative notrace" phase="start" num="135">
     <function id="GetTimerInfo" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" num="138">
     <function id="GetTime" phase="any" callbacksafe="safe" num="139">
     <function id="SetEnvironmentLocalStorage" jkernel="yes" phase="any" 
callbacksafe="safe" impl="innative notrace" num="148">
     <function id="GetEnvironmentLocalStorage" jkernel="yes" phase="any" 
callbacksafe="safe" impl="innative notrace" num="147">

Only the two of the functions above, GetCurrentThreadCpuTimerInfo and 
GetCurrentThreadCpuTime, have the attribute phase="start".
There are no functions in that list with the condition: no phase 
attribute or phase="live".
