// ThreadCritical is used to protect short non-blocking critical sections.
// This class must use no vm facilities that require initialization.
// It is used very early in the vm's initialization, in allocation
// code and other areas. ThreadCritical regions are reentrant.
// Due to race conditions during vm exit, some of the os level
// synchronization primitives may not be deallocated at exit. It
// is a good plan to implement the platform dependant sections of
// code with resources that are recoverable during process
// cleanup by the os. Calling the initialize method before use
// is also problematic, it is best to use preinitialized primitives
// if possible. As an example:
// mutex_t  mp  =  DEFAULTMUTEX;
// Also note that this class is declared as a StackObj to enforce
// block structured short locks. It cannot be declared a ResourceObj
// or CHeapObj, due to initialization issues.

class ThreadCritical : public StackObj {
 friend class os;
  static void initialize();
  static void release();
