EA based lock removal in Mustang-b63!
just found that Mustang-b63 now supports lock removal thanks to EA. Wow one feature I was waiting for since a long time.
Great to have it now, thanks a lot.
However there's one point which is not quite clear to me:

What is a bytecode escape estimator? Is it some kind of optimistic compilation which could force hotspot under some circumstances to recompile or something cheaper?
