19    Description:
20    
21    Parallel make (using compile servers) now works again.
22    
23    To this end, CM.stabilize and CMB.make have been modified to work in
24    two passes when compile servers are attached:
25       1. Compile everything, do not perform stabilization; this pass
26          uses compile servers
27       2. Stabilize everything; this pass does not use compile servers
28    If there are no compile servers, the two passes are combined into one
29    (as before).  Splitting the passes increases the inherent parallelism
30    in the dependency graph because the entire graph including all
31    libraries is available at the same time.  This, in turn, improves
32    server utilization.  The downside is that the master process will
33    have to do some extra work after compilation is done (because for
34    technical reasons it must re-read all the binfiles during stabilization).

57    
58    1. New support for alternative control-flow in MLTREE.
59       Currently we support
60    
61          FLOW_TO(CALL ...., [k1,...,kn])
62    
63       This is needed for 'cuts to' in C-- and try/handle-like constructs
64       in Moby
65    
66       New assembler flag "asm-show-cutsto" to turn on control-flow debugging.
67    
68    2. Register Allocator
69    
70       Changes in interface [from Fermin, John]
71    
72    3. Alpha 8-bit SLL support [Fermin]
73    
74    4. All architectures
75    
76       A new module (ClusterExpandCopies) for expanding parallel copies.
