Hi all,

We want to remove the old global safepoint code, which is unused by most archs.
That code path is no longer tested or maintained by us.
- zero I sent out a patch for fixing it.
- x86 can just be switched over.
- Arm32 still relies on this, it must implement support for it.

Here is Andrew Haleys work for aarch64 as an inspiration for any takers:

Thanks, Robbin
