// This table encapsulates the debugging information required by the
// serviceability agent in order to run. Specifically, we need to
// understand the layout of certain C data structures (offsets, in
// bytes, of their fields.)
//
// There are alternatives for the design of this mechanism, including
// parsing platform-specific debugging symbols from a debug build into
// a program database. While this current mechanism can be considered
// to be a workaround for the inability to debug arbitrary C and C++
// programs at the present time, it does have certain advantages.
// First, it is platform-independent, which will vastly simplify the
// initial bringup of the system both now and on future platforms.
// Second, it is embedded within the VM, as opposed to being in a
// separate program database; experience has shown that whenever
// portions of a system are decoupled, version skew is problematic.
// Third, generating a program database, for example for a product
// build, would probably require two builds to be done: the desired
// product build as well as an intermediary build with the PRODUCT
// flag turned on but also compiled with -g, leading to a doubling of
// the time required to get a serviceability agent-debuggable product
// build. Fourth, and very significantly, this table probably
// preserves more information about field types than stabs do; for
// example, it preserves the fact that a field is a "jlong" rather
// than transforming the type according to the typedef in jni_md.h,
// which allows the Java-side code to identify "Java-sized" fields in
// C++ data structures. If the symbol parsing mechanism was redone
// using stabs, it might still be necessary to have a table somewhere
// containing this information.
//
// Do not change the sizes or signedness of the integer values in
// these data structures; they are fixed over in the serviceability
// agent's Java code (for bootstrapping).
