Can I have a couple of volunteers review the changes for this CR? The
webrev can be found at: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~johnc/7095243/webrev.0/
As part of the review comments for 6484982 (adding reference processing
to G1 evacuation pauses) a couple of the reviewers thought that using
_discoveredSoftRefs when referring to the entire array of discovered
lists was unclear and it was requested that role of _discoveredSoftRefs
be disambiguated. These changes address that review comment. I have
renamed the array of discovered reference lists (_discoveredSoftRefs et
al are just pointers into the array) and use the more generic name in
the contexts where we are referring to the entire array.
Testing: Dacapo2006 and GC locker test from the GC test suite with _all_
collectors and jprt.
