sorry for the mess. You had asked me to move jit_data to the private
header file and I wanted to do it.

ah. That makes sense.

My plan is to find time today to run it on our BTS and see how far
I get.

For GNU Smalltalk we will need to upgrade to GPLv3 (or later)
and our license exception.

My plan would be:

* misc clean-ups before
* remove the copy of GNU lightning
* Take your changes and squash them
* Apply 64bit patches

thanks a lot for your work!
