The W^X mode is local to a thread, so W^X mode change relates to the java thread state change (for java threads). In most cases, JVM executes in write-only mode, except when calling a generated stub like SafeFetch, which requires a temporary switch to execute-only mode. The same execute-only mode is enabled when a java thread executes in java or native states. This approach of managing W^X mode turned out to be simple and efficient enough.

JDI changes also look good.
