non-threaded rts and CollectGarbage

Moritz Angermann-2
Hi there!

in the non-threaded rts we use itimer to do light weight scheduling of threads via SIGALRM signals.  I'm seeing quite a bit of heap corruption on aarch64, and it appears that I also see a lot of signal handling in the GC, for example during evacuate.

Is there a fundamental reason why we can't just disable the timer during GC?

Cheers,
 Moritz
