    ๐Ÿ›  Fix warning on Ubuntu Bionic. (Brian Shirai)
    โš  machine/ffi_util.cpp:53:10: warning: In the GNU C Library, "major" is defined by <sys/sysmacros.h>.
    For historical compatibility, it is currently defined by <sys/types.h> as well, but we plan to
    โœ‚ remove this soon. To use "major", include <sys/sysmacros.h> directly. If you did not intend to
    ๐Ÿ‘‰ use a system-defined macro "major", you should undefine it after including <sys/types.h>.
    [-W#pragma-messages]

    Switch to AddressSanitizer. (Brian Shirai)

    Checkpoint for GC after saving object reference. (Brian Shirai)
    ๐Ÿ‘€ It turns out, surprisingly enough, it's much easier to see the object we
    ๐Ÿ‘€ are trying to trace if we put it where we can see it first.
