- Very simple work-sharing amongst Capabilities: whenever a Capability detects that it has more than 1 thread in its run queue, it runs around looking for empty Capabilities, and shares the threads on its run queue equally with the free Capabilities it finds. - unlock the garbage collector's mutable lists, by having private mutable lists per capability (and per generation). The private mutable lists are moved onto the main mutable lists at each GC. This pulls the old-generation update code out of the storage manager mutex, which is one of the last remaining causes of (alleged) contention. - Fix some problems with synchronising when a GC is required. We should synchronise quicker now.
