These look like good changes to me, especially the SBThread fix - I'm surprised that hasn't caused a problem. The DynamicLoader change should be unnecessary but I don't have a problem with that. Tamas might want to speak to what he meant to do in DWARFASTParserJava.cpp there. Greg Clayton should probably comment on the FormatEntity change.


Greg should look at this.

Personally, this LGTM (the code was originally written by me - Greg moved it around last though)

Greg, feel free to disagree

Can you switch this around and check for log first? We generally don't like to do any work that the log might do if there's no log, and also it makes it easier to see that this whole block is only for logging.


Seems to me this whole section of code doesn't do anything reasonable if reg_ctx is null. It would be better to move the reg_ctx check higher up.
