// This file contains a GCStrategy which serves as an example for the usage

// suitable as a default implementation usable with any collector which can
// consume the standard stackmap format generated by statepoints, uses the
// default addrespace to distinguish between gc managed and non-gc managed
// pointers, and has reasonable relocation semantics.
