review thread sync and clear references #5506

kares commented Dec 11, 2018

  • a loop-less runtime.getCurrentContext
  • do not re-create a (context) soft-ref as threads get finalized (unregistered)
  • re-use un-registering logic (clearing refs) with fiber thread disposal
  • thread locals synchronization does not need to lock the RubyThread

the initial motivation was to avoid some soft-references as with tons of fibers they won't get collected until a full gc is run. might still try to look into that direction, these changes should be conservative and maybe help clearing some of those refs (as fibers are done).

setting a null context should not create a weak-ref
also clear out ref when setting null (happens on thread dispose)
[refactor] clear context-thread binding when un-registering
this piece gets invoked on RubyThread#dispose (finalize)
thus shall not attempt to adopt thread with getCurrentContext
... at the point this gets invoked refs should be null

[refactor] do (same) thread unregistering from fiber-threads
unifies the un-registering logic for normal threads vs fibers

also cache volatile data in a local (its assigned on initialize)
