// An NmethodSweeper is an incremental cleaner for:
//    - cleanup inline caches
//    - reclamation of nmethods
// Removing nmethods from the code cache includes two operations
//  1) mark active nmethods
//     Is done in 'mark_active_nmethods()'. This function is called at a
//     safepoint and marks all nmethods that are active on a thread's stack.
//  2) sweep nmethods
//     Is done in sweep_code_cache(). This function is the only place in the
//     sweeper where memory is reclaimed. Note that sweep_code_cache() is not
//     called at a safepoint. However, sweep_code_cache() stops executing if
//     another thread requests a safepoint. Consequently, 'mark_active_nmethods()'
//     and sweep_code_cache() cannot execute at the same time.
//     To reclaim memory, nmethods are first marked as 'not-entrant'. Methods can
//     be made not-entrant by (i) the sweeper, (ii) deoptimization, (iii) dependency
//     invalidation, and (iv) being replaced be a different method version (tiered
//     compilation). Not-entrant nmethod cannot be called by Java threads, but they
//     can still be active on the stack. To ensure that active nmethod are not reclaimed,
//     we have to wait until the next marking phase has completed. If a not-entrant
//     nmethod was NOT marked as active, it can be converted to 'zombie' state. To safely
//     remove the nmethod, all inline caches (IC) that point to the the nmethod must be
//     cleared. After that, the nmethod can be evicted from the code cache. Each nmethod's
//     state change happens during separate sweeps. It may take at least 3 sweeps before an
//     nmethod's space is freed. Sweeping is currently done by compiler threads between
//     compilations or at least each 5 sec (NmethodSweepCheckInterval) when the code cache
//     is full.
