Fix potential race in Register
58 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
This method uses a static bool to detect if the CC has been registered as a memory reporter yet. We now have CC on workers in addition to the main thread, so potentially multiple threads are accessing this single variable. I think it isn't a problem in practice because the main thread's CC runtime should be completely started up before we start any worker CC runtime, but it still feels questionable. I also am not sure why this boolean is needed, as RegisterJSRuntime should only be called once per CC.

(In reply to Olli Pettay [:smaug] from comment #3) > And we don't want worker CCRuntimes to be registered or something? > (but that would be a different bug) I'm not entirely sure how memory reporter registration workers for non-mainthread. Possibly it just works. Anyways, I already have bug 1283251 on file.
