Setting s-s by default because this involves barriers and GC is on the stack.
autoBisect shows this is probably related to the following changeset:

The first bad revision is:
user:        André Bargull
date:        Thu Oct 06 23:38:16 2016 -0700
summary:     Bug 1303788 - Add support for trailing comma in argument and parameter lists (ES2017). r=arai

Not sure if this is correct. The testcase is also really hard to further reduce. Jon, what do you think?
Flags: needinfo?(jcoppeard)
FWIW I've undone all changes from my commit one by one and the crash still happened. So I'm not sure the bisect is correct...?
It's unlikely to be correct. Perhaps it becomes intermittent as one bisects back...
Keywords: sec-high
There's a comment in JSFunction::setUnlazifiedScript that implies we don't need a barrier here, but it doesn't cover all callers.  Always barrier here.

I also added some extra output to the pre-barrier verifier to make it easier to track these things down.

[Security approval request comment]
How easily could an exploit be constructed based on the patch? Very difficult.

Do comments in the patch, the check-in comment, or tests included in the patch paint a bulls-eye on the security problem? No.

Which older supported branches are affected by this flaw? 51.

If not all supported branches, which bug introduced the flaw? It looks like bug 1263355 caused this by adding a call to JSFunction::setUnlazifiedScript that didn't have a barrier.

Do you have backports for the affected branches? If not, how different, hard to create, and risky will they be? Should be trivial.

How likely is this patch to cause regressions; how much testing does it need? Unlikely.

Track 51+/52+ as sec-high.
As 50 is unaffected, I'll give sec-approval+ now for trunk. We'll want a patch for 51 made and nominated as well.

Hi :jonco, 
Since this bug also affects 51, do you think it's worth uplifting to 51?
