// ciKlass

// HotSpot virtual machine.  In the vm, each klassOop contains an
// embedded Klass object.  ciKlass is subclassed to explicitly
// represent the kind of Klass embedded in the klassOop.  For
// example, a klassOop with an embedded objArrayKlass object is
// represented in the ciObject hierarchy by the class
// ciObjArrayKlass.
