The webrtc signalling unit tests don't compile on my ppc64 machine.

 8:53.57 ../../trunk/webrtc/modules/modules_rtp_rtcp/Unified_cpp_webrtc_modules1.o: In function `Lock::Acquire()':
 8:53.57 /media/nfs/usb_drive_src/firefox/mozilla-central-hg/src/ipc/chromium/src/base/lock.h:16: undefined reference to `LockImpl::Lock()'
 8:53.57 ../../trunk/webrtc/modules/modules_rtp_rtcp/Unified_cpp_webrtc_modules1.o: In function `Lock::Release()':
 8:53.57 /media/nfs/usb_drive_src/firefox/mozilla-central-hg/src/ipc/chromium/src/base/lock.h:17: undefined reference to `LockImpl::Unlock()'
 8:53.58 /usr/bin/ld: jsep_track_unittest: hidden symbol `_ZN8LockImpl6UnlockEv' isn't defined

This issue was introduced in commit 8ee641313088 for bug 1219339

I don't have access to view the details of bug 1219339

Why aren't these unit tests pulling in required parts of ipc/chromium
Should I add LockImpl to FakeIPC.cpp or is there a better solution?
Flags: needinfo?(rjesup)
Sorry, no idea why they're not pulled in; I'd check the differences in the compile lines between ppc64 and x86 for this and for the file/dir that implements LockImpl in ipc.

Breaking the commandline at spaces, then using diff on the two may work better than straight diff

Why isn't it the linking for the unit test picking up PlatformThread on x86 from ipc/chromium/src/base/ ?
Note that symbols from libxul are NOT generally exported and aren't accessible from C++ unit tests, except for a few white-listed ones.  See symbols.def.  That's why there's a lot of code with #ifdef MOZILLA_INTERNAL_API and stuff like that.
Bug 1219339 added includes of Singleton.h to a few places in webrtc/signalling

Singleton.h (in ipc/chromium) includes atomic_ops.h

For all the tier 1 platforms there is a platform specific file that this includes (ie atomicops_internals_arm_gcc.h) but otherwise it falls back to
atomicops_internals_mutex.h which includes lock.h

This is why I get the undefined symbols from lock.h ppc64 but tier1 platforms link fine.
It is unclear to me where I would have to whitelist these symbols so the unit test can see them. I don't see a file named symbols.def

There is a version of the atomicops for ppc

I will try adapting that.

I expect you will hit the same linking issue on SPARC.

Add ppc specific atomic operations to ipc/chromium

Waldo is the atomics expert, I think.

Jeff, any update on this review? Is there someone else I should assign it to?
I haven't found a good, solid chunk of time to devote to it just yet, unfortunately.  Maybe tomorrow.

Add ppc specific atomic operations to ipc/chromium

Review of attachment 8719232 [details] [diff] [review]:

There's semi-pervasive use of inlines, here, before their definitions.  For example:

inline Atomic64 NoBarrier_AtomicIncrement(volatile Atomic64* ptr,
                                          Atomic64 increment) {
  return Barrier_AtomicIncrement(ptr, increment);
inline Atomic64 Barrier_AtomicIncrement(volatile Atomic64* ptr,
                                        Atomic64 increment) {

Presumably this works at all because atomicops.h declares all these functions, then this header just (later, in each translation unit) defines them.  Traditionally I believe GCC will warn about using an inline function that hasn't been defined yet, so this seems possibly like it'll be pretty spewy.

But hey -- this is PPC-only, so it's your problem if you get warnings out the wazoo from this.  :-)

This reads super-squirrely.  At the top of this file (inside the subtle namespace), please add

namespace detail {

inline Atomic32
FullyBarriered_CompareAndSwap(volatile Atomic32* ptr,
                              Atomic32 old_value, Atomic32 new_value) {
    ...current contents of NoBarrier_CompareAndSwap...

} // namespace detail

and then call detail::FullyBarriered_CompareAndSwap in *_CompareAndSwap.  It's of course perfectly fine to have more barriers than strictly required, for any of these methods.  It's emphatically *not* okay to have fewer.  And as currently written, it reeeeeeallly reads like there are fewer.  Let's have better names to not be confusing.

Can you not use __sync_synchronize() here?  That seems preferable to asm-goo to me.  And put the closing brace on a separate line, let's at least try to be minimally style-consistent here.  :-)

Jeff, I copied this file from upstream (chromium/v8) and only made very minimal changes so it compiles.

I don't mind making the changes it is just a question of how much we want this to diverge from upstream. Is it possible that we would take a newer version of this code from upstream at some point in the future, and if so wouldn't these changes just make things harder to merge/update
Oh, bah, upstream.  I hadn't realized you got this from there.  Carry on without my requested changes, then.
