Description

2 years ago
The IPC code is using an old version of Chromium's atomic operations code, which is missing OS/architecture support (e.g., bug 1250403, bug 577086).  Following what we've been trying to do with this kind of issue in ipc/chromium/src in general (e.g., bug 1062533, bug 1063318), these should be replaced with the mozilla:: atomics, which would work anywhere the rest of Gecko does.
Now, chromium uses c++11 atomic now by http://crbug.com/559247
