IPCPayload defines the data to send in an IPC operation and/or to receive in an operation.

There are send/recv pairs for data (*Buf), NPM References (*RefTab), and arbitrary Java objects (*ObjTab). For each type of data, the associated *Start and *Length parameters define the start offset in the buffer and the end offset. After a successful receive, the recv*Start field will point to the end of the received data. After a successful send, the send*Start field will point to the end of the data sent. This means that for partially completed sends and receives, the IPCPayload buffers will be all set to resume the operation at the point of interruption.

There are no public methods in this class. Just set the defined objects as you need.

All of the return codes used are defined in the ThreadIPC class.

TODO: The copy function really should be native methods
