Ok, finally got around to getting OpenJDK + MLVM patches up and
building. Today I'm planning to look at:
- JRuby using anonymous classloading
Ideally this will just be a matter of swapping in a different
classloader, but then would come the removal of a lot of hassle we
currently have to keep names unique and ensure they're GCable. I'll have
to come up with some memory metrics to show that it's still working.
- Ruby continuation support using copyStack/resumeStack
I saw this was in the patch repo also, and can't resist playing with it.
In order for us to support Ruby's continuations, I'd also need to wire
up preservation of the Ruby stack, but that's just a bit of grunt work.
Will update with status as I get anything working.
