I've created a patch that merges the good parts of
pockelinux kaffe's implementation of the
java.lang.reflect package with kaffe.org's tree. So
you might ask: Why would we want to do it?

* It moves a lot of code from C libraries to Java
libraries, making it easier to comprehend & hack on
for occassional bug fixing.

* It makes the codebase cleaner, as array out of
bounds exceptions, for example, are handled
automatically by the VM, and need not to be
specifically checked against in the C code.

you tell me ;)

I'd like to see it tested on as many systems as
possible, since it touches very sensitive parts of the
libraries. I'm looking forward to your bug reports.

P.S: no detailed ChangeLog entry this time, as it is
just "merged with pocketlinux kaffe, with a couple of
value widening fixes to pocketlinux codebase".
