I am sending this to both runtime-dev and gc-dev, since the changed code lives in runtime,
but it's used by GC.
Both the code and the literature use `alpha`, but its meaning is actually inverted. I
could include this refactoring in later revision if people feel that it's desirable.
Tested: tier1 (locally) and tier1-3 (mach5)
