SharedThreadPool::GetEventTarget should be made private


(Core :: Audio/Video, defect)

Not set

Returning |mEventTarget| from GetEventTarget() could lead to a longer life of |mEventTarget| than SharedThreadPool which defeat the purpose of SpinUntilShutdown().

Since SharedThreadPool implements nsIEventTarget, the user can just cast a SharedThreadPool into an nsIEventTarget when an nsIEventTarget is wanted.

Yes, GetEventTarget() would be better private.

Per comment 0 and comment 1, SharedThreadPool::GetEventTarget() [1] should be private.

Looks fine, but why not remove GetEventTarget() completely and change NS_FORWARD_SAFE_NSIEVENTTARGET(GetEventTarget()) to NS_FORWARD_SAFE_NSIEVENTTARGET(mEventTarget)?  There are no other users that I can find.

Good idea.

Hi vikneshwar,
Please change the patch as suggested by Matthew and put r=kinetik in the commit message. Also please push the patch to Try to ensure the patch doesn't break any builds on all platforms.

Can you update the repo and try again? It built fine for me.
hai jwwang , when i run the build with patch it fails , here is the log . However it builds fine without the patch
Flags: needinfo?(jwwang)
Mystery solved: bug 996465 removed the only call to GetEventTarget().  So with a current tree, this patch works fine.

Good to go!
This is a simple change that don't need run Try tests provided it doesn't break builds.
