Code comments in check_special_condition_for_native_trans() mention that unsafe access errors should not be handled because that may block while creating the exception. But that should not be an issue since we can always make sure we call process_if_requested_with_exit_check() after the call to throw_unsafe_access_internal_error() to process any pending operations not already handled in a ThreadBlockInVM wrapper (today that only means suspend requests and object reallocation operations).
> By removing this special treatment for unsafe access errors we can also simplify the async exception support API. For instance we can remove _async_exception_condition and simplify some of the supporting methods. I also removed the _thread_in_native case from the switch statement in check_and_handle_async_exceptions() since we never call that method in that state.

Hi Patricio,

Separate commits would be good if you can easily manage that, but if it is too much effort then don't bother.

I'm surprised to see that Unsafe_CopySwapMemory0 is UNSAFE_LEAF rather than UNSAFE_ENTRY.
