[kaffe] Threading

I'm trying to build Kaffe for an arm device.

At the moment I'm working with the latest CVS and I'm getting an assertion
error on line 238 of thread.c. I have pasted this code segment below but
basically the static field 'root' is not being found in
java.lang.ThreadGroup. I've had a check and this field does exist.

Any ideas?

        /* use root group for this thread:
         * loop over all static fields of java.lang.ThreadGroup ...
        for (i=0; i<CLASS_NSFIELDS(ThreadGroupClass); i++)
                Field* f = &CLASS_SFIELDS(ThreadGroupClass)[i];

                /* ... and if it's a field called root, take it */
                if (!strcmp (f->name->data, "root"))
                        unhand(tid)->group = * (jref *)FIELD_ADDRESS(f);
        /* finally complain if we did not find the field */
        assert(unhand(tid)->group != NULL);
