According to clang's static analysis, https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/file/da986c9f1f72/js/src/jit/IonBuilder.cpp#l9741 appears to return stack-allocated memory. nbp says this is a false positive because "basically TypeSet::unionSets allocates a new TemporaryTypeSet, and the guards above the acc are guarding that we enter the loop." Since this is identified as a severe vulnerability by static analysis, it would be great if the code could be rewritten to avoid the false positive.
Might indeed be good to get this fixed. I think it should be straight forward to fix? Let's do it. Putting this as P2 to get it this or next release.
