Comment 5

Okay, I may be being confused by GDB or just my own head, but here's what I *think* is going on. needinfo'ing terrence.

1) We enter js::Debugger::slowPathOnLogAllocationSite, which creates a Rooted<GCVector<JSObject*>> and stores one Debugger JSObject pointer in it.

2) js::Debugger::appendAllocationSite calls JSCompartment::wrap, which causes a GC (js::gc::GCRuntime::runDebugGC).

3) The GC decides the Debugger in the Rooted GCVector is garbage, and calls js::Debugger::~Debugger.

At no time between 1) and 3) does control reach js::RootLists::traceStackRoots.

Comment 6

This behavior occurs on the last (in my case, the eighth) call to js::Debugger::slowPathOnLogAllocationSite; and indeed, it doesn't call the traceStackRoots.

But fitzgen just pointed out what the problem almost certainly is:

slowPathOnLogAllocationSite only grew that rooting attempt recently. It's rooting Debuggers that it's just taken out of some GlobalObject's DebuggerVector, *which hold its elements weakly*.

Taking weakly held objects and sticking them in a Rooted doesn't work. The snapshot-at-the-beginning invariant assumes that every object to be retained is either 1) reachable by strong references, 2) preserved by a pre-barrier, or 3) freshly allocated.

So we need a read barrier when someone extracts Debuggers from a GlobalObject's debugger vector.


gonna get fitzgen to analyze ALL my bugs for me from now on

So, Terrence, my needinfo from you has become:

What's the best form for that read barrier to take?

Is there some reason that wrapping the pointer in ReadBarriered<T> would not work? I'll look closer at the type signature tomorrow.

There's no need for this; I didn't realize that jit-test metalines let you pass flags directly.
