** Collectable objects may have one of three colors: white, which
** means the object is not marked; gray, which means the
** object is marked, but its references may be not marked; and
** black, which means that the object and all its references are marked.
** The main invariant of the garbage collector, while marking objects,
** is that a black object can never point to a white one. Moreover,
** any gray object must be in a "gray list" (gray, grayagain, weak,
** allweak, ephemeron) so that it can be visited again before finishing
** the collection cycle. These lists have no meaning when the invariant
** is not being enforced (e.g., sweep phase).

** macros to tell when main invariant (white objects cannot point to black
** ones) must be kept. During a non-generational collection, the sweep
** phase may break the invariant, as objects turned white may point to
** still-black objects. The invariant is restored when sweep ends and
** all objects are white again. During a generational collection, the
** invariant must be kept all times.

#define keepinvariant(g)        (isgenerational(g) || g->gcstate <= GCSatomic)

** Outside the collector, the state in generational mode is kept in
** 'propagate', so 'keepinvariant' is always true.
