        The card table is used keep track of stores of references to minor generation objects inside objects of the major generation (generally). As you can imagine, these stores happen mostly in JIT compiled code (which starts after the runtime invoke) and it doesn't make sense to transition to native code each time. This cardtable marking is called the write barrier and you can see how it is emitted in mini_emit_write_barrier. For the general case this generates the assembly associated with OP_CARD_TABLE_WBARRIER.

         Especially at startup we might have some objects that are allocated directly in the major heap, so there can be cardtable markings without yet having any collections and normal object promotion.

hi,all      I'm doing some research of sgen_cardtable of the embeded mono.
      And find that ,after the mono_jit_init_version call , some bytes of sgen_cardtable is aready setted.
      Some of the call in mono_jit_init_version will call sgen_card_table_wbarrier_set_field to change some bytes of  sgen_cardtable.
      But there is one exception that change the memory of sgen_cardtable without call any of the sgen_cardtable method.
      That exception is the invoke of the  Constructor of System.OutOfMemoryException.
      The Call Chain is 

      I have tested the newest stable release of mono,The result is the same. 

The Quesition is :

    Why call the ctor of System.OutOfMemoryException will cause some byte of  sgen_cardtable be setted without call any method
    of sgen_cardtable.
