[RFC]: Realtime garbage collector for RTEMS

Patch status: Platform: all


Parrot works on RTEMS. I am not sure how our garbage collector interacts with the real-time-ness of RTEMS, though. It probably needs to be shut off currently (parrot -G), to retain realtime characteristics. I have been doing research on realtime gc algorithms, there are a few implemented on the JVM, JeRTY VM and Jikes RVM. The "Tortured History of Real-Time Garbage Collectors" also seems like an interesting read.






Any changes to the GC API should take into account that a realtime GC algorithm should be possible.
