Infrastructure to handle objects that may be shared and referenced by
multiple tasks or other objects, e..g open files, memory address space
etc.

The state of shared objects is saved once. On the first encounter, the
state is dumped and the object is assigned a unique identifier (objref)
and also stored in a hash table (indexed by its physical kenrel address).
