Subject: Boehm GC API update backport

Message-ID: <> (raw)

Proposed 4 commits are code refactoring of boehm-gc (and libjava/, accordingly) to match API of recent BDWGC master ( ). This should simplify optional replacement of internal boehm-gcc with the external one.
All gcj tests pass.

Some of the benefits of using mainline boehm gc:
*  has no compiler warning
*  more targets supported (e.g. arm64)
*  no trouble with back-porting gc patches Similar thing was proposed for the Mono community -  (the patches were accepted recently)

[1] The proposed patches in GCC unofficial git mirror fork -

Best regards,
