// In order to preserve oops during garbage collection, they should be
// allocated and passed around via Handles within the VM. A handle is
// simply an extra indirection allocated in a thread local handle area.
//
// A handle is a ValueObj, so it can be passed around as a value, can
// be used as a parameter w/o using &-passing, and can be returned as a
// return value.
//
// oop parameters and return types should be Handles whenever feasible.
//
// Handles are declared in a straight-forward manner, e.g.
//
//   oop obj = ...;
//   Handle h1(obj);              // allocate new handle
//   Handle h2(thread, obj);      // faster allocation when current thread is known
//   Handle h3;                   // declare handle only, no allocation occurs
//   ...
//   h3 = h1;                     // make h3 refer to same indirection as h1
//   oop obj2 = h2();             // get handle value
//   h1->print();                 // invoking operation on oop
//
// Handles are specialized for different oop types to provide extra type
// information and avoid unnecessary casting. For each oop type xxxOop
// there is a corresponding handle called xxxHandle, e.g.
//
//   oop           Handle
//   methodOop     methodHandle
//   instanceOop   instanceHandle
//
// For klassOops, it is often useful to model the Klass hierarchy in order
// to get access to the klass_part without casting. For each xxxKlass there
// is a corresponding handle called xxxKlassHandle, e.g.
//
//   klassOop      Klass           KlassHandle
//   klassOop      methodKlass     methodKlassHandle
//   klassOop      instanceKlass   instanceKlassHandle
//
