So ... if the dtrace_waited_probe call was attempting (but failing?) to 
work around the tail-call optimization bug, would it not suffice to drop 
the call and just add a return:

DTRACE_MONITOR_PROBE(waited, monitor, obj(), THREAD);
// This dummy return is in place to get around dtrace bug 6254741.  Once
// that's fixed we can remove it and change this back to a void method
return 0;
