[concurrency-interest] LinkedTransferQueue in ForkJoinPool

On my Mac 1.7.0 build 223, the ForkJoinPool still contains a 
LinkedTransferQueue<ForkJoinTask<?>>.

On Linux and Windows, 1.7.0_02 and 1.7.0_01 instead use an array of 
ForkJoinTask.

I had a look on the concurrency interest mailing archives and could not 
find any discussion as to why this was changed.  Do any of you know the 
story behind this?  I have my suspicions, but would prefer to hear it 
from the guys who really know :-)

Regards

Heinz
