Re: JavaMemoryModel: PC language alert: catatonia action

OK, so names like spin, or busyWait aren't good names because they are
behaviors that real programs do (e.g., busyWait on a volatile variable).

Names like think, pause, stutter, and so on because they don't reflect
the fact that the program will perform an infinite sequence of these

Some of the other names are just too cute.

How about infiniteLoop action?

Alternatively, blackHole?
