I find it rather suspicious that caml_ext_table_remove would take the responsibility to caml_stat_free the data to remove. Does this really correspond to the ownership disciplines of all users of caml_ext_table_add?

Also, I'm not familiar with this part of the code, but isn't abort()ing in caml_static_release_bytecode a bit overconfident? I would be more comfortable with at least an error message.

It does; caml_ext_table_free performs caml_stat_free on the data, which is why I wrote _remove that way.

I don't think so; in the impossible case (mismatched reify/release) that it happens, the backtrace provides more than enough context to debug this.

gashe : here is what I think. It seems fine to me, except for the abort(), that does not fit the discipline of the rest of the runtime. You should instead use CAMLassert.

Merged -- in trunk only -- with the change suggested by Jacques-Henri:

if (!cf) {
/* [cf] Not matched with a caml_reify_bytecode call; impossible. */
Assert (0);
} else {
caml_ext_table_remove(&caml_code_fragments_table, cf);
}
