Emanuel, is bug 1332594 a likely regressor? (Doesn't seem likely, does it?)
Flags: needinfo?(emanuel.hoogeveen)
I very much doubt this was *caused* by bug 1332594, but it may have revealed a preexisting bug. It also found a missing OOM check in TraceLogger that prevented it from landing for a while, and this looks like something similar. Nicolas, maybe you could have a look?
Flags: needinfo?(emanuel.hoogeveen) → needinfo?(nicolas.b.pierron)
The problem is that we report an OOM under js::Debugger::slowPathOnNewScript, which ignores the returned value of the dispatchHook function, thus resume as a successful execution under BytecodeCompiler::compileScript

Shu might know better what is the expected behaviour, to either propagate this Debugger error, or to clean-up the pending exception when we return from the dispatchHook.

nbp, thanks for debugging this. We just need to clear the pending exception here, since the OOM isn't handlable at the callsite of onNewScript in the frontend.
Flags: needinfo?(shu)
I don't know of a way to meaningfully land a test for this. When not crashing,
the attached fuzz test is way too slow (I ended up ^C-ing it).

AFAICT, this goes back as far as Fx50. Should we consider backporting this to any release branches or can it ride the trains?

It should ride the trains.
