Make memory access and linker API preview APIs

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      We should start planning for moving the foreign API from incubating modules back to java.base and mark it as preview.

      Some initial considerations about where bits should go:

      * create new package: java.foreign - and put most of the stuff there
      * MemoryLayouts should disappear - Java layout constants should be moved in wrapper classes - other constants should be part of MemoryLayout
      * MemoryHandles -> move to MethodHandles
      * MemoryAccess -> consider renaming to MemorySegments
