On tree.html there is:
"Bottom_index structures contain slightly more information than just hdr
pointers. The asc_link field is used to link all bottom_index structures
in ascending order for fast traversal. This list is pointed to be
GC_all_bottom_indices. It is maintained with the aid of key field that
contains the high bits corresponding to the bottom_index."
What do you mean by 'fast traversal'? For what purpose will the gc
traverse the bottom_index structures one by one??
