21    1. All "raw memory access" primitives for the new FFI are implemented now
22       (at least on the x86).
23    2. Some further cleanup of CM's parallel make mechanism.

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