// ciObject
// This class represents an oop in the HotSpot virtual machine.
// Its subclasses are structured in a hierarchy which mirrors
// an aggregate of the VM's oop and klass hierarchies (see
// oopHierarchy.hpp).  Each instance of ciObject holds a handle
// to a corresponding oop on the VM side and provides routines
// for accessing the information in its oop.  By using the ciObject
// hierarchy for accessing oops in the VM, the compiler ensures
// that it is safe with respect to garbage collection; that is,
// GC and compilation can proceed independently without
// interference.
// Within the VM, the oop and klass hierarchies are separate.
// The compiler interface does not preserve this separation --
// the distinction between `klassOop' and `Klass' are not
// reflected in the interface and instead the Klass hierarchy
// is directly modeled as the subclasses of ciKlass.
