 * Per-thread blocking support for JSR166. See the Java-level
 * Documentation for rationale. Basically, park acts like wait, unpark
 * like notify.
 * 6271289 --
 * To avoid errors where an os thread expires but the JavaThread still
 * exists, Parkers are immortal (type-stable) and are recycled across
 * new threads.  This parallels the ParkEvent implementation.
 * Because park-unpark allow spurious wakeups it is harmless if an
 * unpark call unparks a new thread using the old Parker reference.
 * In the future we'll want to think about eliminating Parker and using
 * ParkEvent instead.  There's considerable duplication between the two
 * services.

  // relative, and absolute) are multiplexed into one call.

// ParkEvents are type-stable and immortal.
// Lifecycle: Once a ParkEvent is associated with a thread that ParkEvent remains
// associated with the thread for the thread's entire lifetime - the relationship is
// stable. A thread will be associated at most one ParkEvent.  When the thread
// expires, the ParkEvent moves to the EventFreeList.  New threads attempt to allocate from
// the EventFreeList before creating a new Event.  Type-stability frees us from
// worrying about stale Event or Thread references in the objectMonitor subsystem.
// (A reference to ParkEvent is always valid, even though the event may no longer be associated
// with the desired or expected thread.  A key aspect of this design is that the callers of
// park, unpark, etc must tolerate stale references and spurious wakeups).
// Only the "associated" thread can block (park) on the ParkEvent, although
// any other thread can unpark a reachable parkevent.  Park() is allowed to
// return spuriously.  In fact park-unpark a really just an optimization to
// avoid unbounded spinning and surrender the CPU to be a polite system citizen.
// A degenerate albeit "impolite" park-unpark implementation could simply return.
// See for more details.
// Eventually I'd like to eliminate Events and ObjectWaiters, both of which serve as
// thread proxies, and simply make the THREAD structure type-stable and persistent.
// Currently, we unpark events associated with threads, but ideally we'd just
// unpark threads.
// The base-class, PlatformEvent, is platform-specific while the ParkEvent is
// platform-independent.  PlatformEvent provides park(), unpark(), etc., and
// is abstract -- that is, a PlatformEvent should never be instantiated except
// as part of a ParkEvent.
// Equivalently we could have defined a platform-independent base-class that
// exported Allocate(), Release(), etc.  The platform-specific class would extend
// that base-class, adding park(), unpark(), etc.
// A word of caution: The JVM uses 2 very similar constructs:
// 1. ParkEvent are used for Java-level "monitor" synchronization.
// 2. Parkers are used by JSR166-JUC park-unpark.
// We'll want to eventually merge these redundant facilities and use ParkEvent.
