// Check for a thread that is suspended. Note that thread resume tries

// We check to see if this thread is suspended without locking to
// avoid deadlocking with a third thread that is waiting for this
// thread to be suspended. The third thread can notice the safepoint
// that we're trying to start at the beginning of its SR_lock->wait()
// call. If that happens, then the third thread will block on the
// safepoint while still holding the underlying SR_lock. We won't be
// able to get the SR_lock and we'll deadlock.
// We don't need to grab the SR_lock here for two reasons:
// 1) The suspend flags are both volatile and are set with an
// Atomic::cmpxchg() call so we should see the suspended
// state right away.
// 2) We're being called from the safepoint polling loop; if
// we don't see the suspended state on this iteration, then
// we'll come around again.
