35 // processed weakly by GC.  The runtime structures that point to the oop must
36 // either peek or resolve the oop, the latter will keep the oop alive for
37 // the GC cycle.  The runtime structures that reference the oop must test
38 // if the value is NULL.  If it is NULL, it has been cleaned out by GC.
39 // This is the vm version of jweak but has different GC lifetimes and policies,
