Parallel Compilation Services for Jikes RVM on multicore

by Michael J Taylor for Jikes RVM

SUMMARY: This project aims to speed up runtime code optimization on the Jikes RVM, by using multiple compiler threads on multi-core platforms. Jira issues - related to RVM-239 - restructuring of compiler phases. (We need to have explicit info about side-effects of compiler optimizations to know which phases can run in parallel)
