This looks like a jump to NULL but I'm not sure if this is guaranteed, so marking s-s until it has been investigated. This also only crashes on 32 bit while it also asserts on 64 bit.

It looks like you changed FlowAliasAnalysis.cpp recently, nbp, can you take a look at this? Thanks.
Flags: needinfo?(nicolas.b.pierron)
I will look at it next week, if I have time during a firefox compilation.
Otherwise, Hannes feel free to take it.

This sounds potentially bad so I'm going to mark it sec-high. Hopefully somebody can take a look soon.

The correct people are needinfo'ed. This crash is flow alias analysis which is not enabled by default, currently.

If there's a bug for enabling it by default, can you make this blocking it? Thanks.

Due to GVN we sometimes get a disconnected graph. In that state (before fixup) the first block of the graph is not the entry of the graph. It only get deleted lateron till the start of the OSR. (Since that is the entry in that case). As a result in FlowAA we don't have any dependencies in the fake-entry and we are asserting. We can just run no FlowAA on those. They will get deleted after GVN ends and we re-run AA again.

Are these OSR-dominated blocks, or dead blocks?

During GVN all loop header should have an extra predecessor to keep them alive, if the blocks are OSR-dominated, then they got to keep these fix-up blocks as unreachable fake parent block.
Hannes, this bug is assigned to you and the patch has an r+. What's the next step? :)

Opening since this is not enabled by default path.

Landing would be the next step.
