This looks good!


    if (!h_class_loader.is_null()) {
      _class_loader = _handles.add(h_class_loader());
+ if (!h_class_loader.is_null()) {
+ _class_loader_klass = h_class_loader->klass();
+ }

Can you put the _class_loader_klass under the if statement above it?

+ } else {
+ return _class_loader_klass->external_name();

Can you add short comment:  // May be called in a race before 
_name_and_id is initialized.

Unfortunately, there isn't a good way to assert this (other than maybe a 
flag which would serve the same purpose as a null _name_and_id), and 
this code path is sensitive to safepoints because the link from 
class_loader to ClassLoaderData and the addition of ClassLoaderData to 
the CLDG needs to appear atomic.

Thanks for the speedy fix.
