Increase stack size in the Nuwa process
This is a followup to bug 1119157 comment #14 to increase the stack size of the threads cloned by Nuwa.
We allocate thread stacks using mmap() in the Nuwa process(). Increase the stack size to default (= 1MiB) should have no effect on memory usage.

Is there not some way to do it based on the stack size that was actually requested when the thread was created? Hard-coding any size seems like it will bite us somewhere eventually.
Comment on attachment 8579256 [details] [diff] [review] Increase thread stack size in the Nuwa process I agree with Ben. The requested stack size (which defaults to 1 megabyte in at least some versions of bionic) is in the 'attr' attribute to pthread_create. We should just use that.

(Using pthread_attr_getstacksize/pthread_attr_getstackaddr/pthread_attr_getstack. We may also want to care about pthread_attr_getguardsize too.)
Changes: * Respect the attributes (detachstate, stacksize, guardsize) when creating the threads in the Nuwa process. * If the caller doesn't specify pthread_attr_t, use the default 1MB stack size as Android does. Try push log: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=12f23ec99289 * We might still need to copy other pthread_attr_t attributes. Or maybe it's better if we don't copy the thread attributes one by one, but just modify the one as necessary (pthread_attr_setstack()).
Comment on attachment 8580649 [details] [diff] [review] Respect caller-specified thread attributes. Yes, I think it would be an improvement to propagate the other pthread_attr_t attributes some way. And/or causing the thread creation to fail if the attributes aren't expected, like starting a thread in the detached state might be a concerning thing to happen in the pre-fork NuWa process. But that seems like it wants to be a separate bug.
