While tracing the Objects generated by Object.C

rb_cObject(klass) --> (metaclass for rb_cObject)
rb_cObject(super) --> (Object_x:  A ICLASS Object)

Object_x:(klass) --> rb_mKernel
Object_x(super) --> Nil

Is "Object_x" simply a odd way of linking in the Kernel Methods and
Variables?

If yes - Why is it done this way.
