Kawa and gnu.bytecode update
- Per Bothner, Oracle
An update on Kawa and the gnu.bytecode toolkit. I'll focus on implementation, performance, and optimizations. For example gnu.bytecode generates the StackMapTable attribute on-the-fly using compiler-produced type-information, without a slow post-processor. There are also some lessons learned from implementing benchmark programs. I will also briefly touch on new and planned user-visible changes.
