//===----------------------------------------------------------------------===//
//
// This file contains a GCStrategy for the CoreCLR Runtime.
// The strategy is similar to Statepoint-example GC, but differs from it in
// certain aspects, such as:
// 1) Base-pointers need not be explicitly tracked and reported for
//    interior pointers
// 2) Uses a different format for encoding stack-maps
// 3) Location of Safe-point polls: polls are only needed before loop-back edges
//    and before tail-calls (not needed at function-entry)
//
// The above differences in behavior are to be implemented in upcoming checkins.
//
