The solution used is the linker flag /ORDER [1] which allows us to specify the order in which methods are laid out in the binary image. Since the flag only operates on non-static methods, the methods have been made non-static and also changed name so that they will not clash with other methods.

Are these method names part of any public API?  If not, never mind. If 
so, changing names like thread_func to jvm_attach_thread_func could 
surprise some users and require a CCC request...


line 1: jvm_attach_thread_func at 4

Is that @4 correct?  I do not see it in the _64 version of the file - 
just wondering...
