Summary: bug fixes and a new GC

Initial Comment:
1. hashcode-bug.patch contains hash-code extraction and status change bug fix
2. generational mark swap garbage collector. this works similar to generational mark compact. but to overcome difficulties of implementing getNextObject, it stores object start ref at the back end of heap, grows towards start of heap.
