[LispM-Hackers] Do we need a read barrier to support e3 GC?
Sat Apr 13 06:56:02 2002
As near as I can tell, unless I muck about with non-privileged segments
(which I am not currently doing -- I currently have only one segment),
the standard intel architecture MMU does not support read-denied pages
(although I can probably fake it by pretending the page is not mapped
and doing more work). Does anybody knowledgeable about the E2 GC know
whether the GC depends upon a read barrier?
