update to 6.2 alpha6
changes since 6.2alpha5:
- There was extra underscore in the name of GC_save_registers_in_stack
for NetBSD/SPARC. (Thanks to Jaap Boender for the patch.)
- Integrated Brian Alliet's patch for Darwin. This restructured the
linuxthreads/pthreads support to separate generic pthreads support
from more the system-dependent thread-stopping code. I believe this
should make it easier to eliminate the code duplication between
pthreads platforms in the future. The patch included some other
- Integrated Dan Bonachea's patch to support AIX threads. This required
substantial manual integration, mostly due to conflicts with other
recent threads changes. It may take another iteration to
get it to work.
- Removed HPUX/PA-RISC support from aix_irix_threads.c. It wasn't used
anyway and it cluttered up the code. And anything we can do to migrate
towards generic pthreads support is a good thing.
- Added a more explicit test for tracing of function arguments to test.c.
(Thanks to Dan Grayson.)
- Added Akira Tagoh's PowerPC64 patch.
- Fixed some bit rot in the Cygwin port. (Thanks to Dan Bonachea for
pointing it out.) Gc.h now includes just windows.h, not winbase.h.
- Declared GC_save_regs_in_stack() in gc_priv.h. Remove other declarations.
- Changed --enable-cplusplus to use automake consitionals. The old way
confused libtool. "Make install" didn't work correctly for the old version.
Previously --enable-cplusplus was broken on cygwin.
- Changed the C version of GC_push_regs to fail at compile time if it is
generated with an empty body. This seems to have been the cause of one
or two subtle failures on unusual platforms. Those failures should
now occur at build time and be easily fixable.
