[Mono-dev] [PATCH] mono_gc_base_init not called with --debug

When we start the JIT with --debug, mono_gc_base_init is not called
before 'mono_gc_register_root' is called. This causes incorrect behavior
if mono_gc_base_init changes some of the global variables (pagesize for
instance). This patch corrects this.

Here is the (cleaned up) backtrace of mono_register_root being called:

mono_gc_register_root at sgen-gc.c:5509
mono_debugger_initialize at mono-debug-debugger.c:84
mono_debug_init at mono-debug.c:234
mono_main at driver.c:1641
main at main.c:34

I put the mono_gc_base_init in mono_debug_init and not in mono_main
since the latter ensures the problem is solved only when mono_debug_init
is called from mono_main and not from other places (like 'interp.c
[main_thread_handler > mono_main])'.
