Linker naming bikeshed

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Some names in the internal implementation of the linker could be improved.

      I suggest the following renaming changes.

        - ProgrammableInvoker -> DowncallLinker
        - ProgrammableUpcallHandler -> UpcallLinker
        - 'native invoker' -> 'downcall stub'
        - 'optimzed upcall stub' -> 'upcall stub'
        - OptimizedEntryBlob -> UpcallStub
        - optimized_entry_frame -> upcall_stub_frame

      Then renaming of some hotspot files:

        - universalNativeInvoker* -> downcallLinker*
        - universalUpcallHandler* -> upcallLinker*
        - foreign_globals* -> foreignGlobals* (to match existing convention)
