      Description

      > Can I safely assume that immediately after the JVMTI interface
      > RunAgentThread() returns to the caller, that the new thread's state
      > will be something other than 0 or "NEW" (i.e. not java.lang.Thread.State.NEW)?

      Yes, the thread has been started and thus will be alive unless the the
      thread died immediately.

      > I want to call SetThreadLocalStorage() immediately after RunAgentThread(),
      > and I would rather not have to deal with JVMTI_ERROR_THREAD_NOT_ALIVE errors.
      > It appears to be safe, but just thought I'd ask. I didn't see anything
      > in the doc on RunAgentThread() that clarified this for me.
