Excuse my ignorance... but TLA??? Three Letter Acronym??? Thread Local
Allocation (my best guess so far).....

It does TLA under linux and the upcoming GC will be even better at this.

Sorry for resending this, but I really need to know if my work on
concurrency optimizations will apply to Mono as well.  If so, I'd love
to contribute back the work-stealing scheduler which is similar to the
one found in .Net 4.0.  Thanks.


I'm working on some lock-free data structures in c# and have a
question on the internals of the GC on mono.  Does each thread have
its own heap that it can allocate from?  Or asked differently, does
"new object()" always cause a lock on the global heap or only when the
thread's local heap is exhausted?  Thanks.
