Description

2 years ago
Work is underway on an experimental implementation of BigInt values for
SpiderMonkey, as specified by <https://tc39.github.io/proposal-bigint/>.
BigInt is now a Stage 2 proposal, and interest has also been expressed
by V8 and JSC. More background information is available at
<https://github.com/tc39/proposal-bigint>.

BigInts are represented in memory as a sequence of bits, which in the
general case will be an out-of-line byte array. BigInts could be stored
in either signed-magnitude or two's complement form. (The arithmetic
functions are easier to implement for signed-magnitude numbers, but the
specification requires two's complement for some operations.)

BigInt modifies the behavior of many operations, including type
conversions and the comparison and numeric operators.

Changes to the parser are needed to support BigInt literals and to
update the increment/decrement operators to work with BigInts.

An important design question is whether to implement the arithmetic
operators as native or self-hosted intrinsics, probably using an
external library such as GMP in the former case. Using an existing
library has the advantage of providing good performance for less initial
effort, but a self-hosted library also has advantages, such as greater
flexibility in representation, better compiler integration, and simpler
integration with the rest of the JS runtime (GC, etc.).

Writing the arithmetic functions in JS is convenient for development,
but it also has a serious limitation: only relatively small BigInt
digits can be used. One solution was documented by JonL White in his
1986 paper "Reconfigurable, Retargetable Bignums": in many cases, BigInt
digits could be manipulated as second-class objects using a small set of
new arithmetic primitives, rather than representing them using ordinary
JS numbers. The primitives can be adapted to use the full capabilities
of the host machine without changing the high-level functions. This
would significantly increase performance while keeping most of the
BigInt implementation in JS.

Some future optimizations should include:

 - Storing the digits of small BigInts in-line, similar to strings. Most
   BigInts will be small, and many users will only need 64-bit numbers.

 - Allocating BigInts in the nursery (I haven't been able to figure out
   how to allocate BigInts there).

 - Better JIT support (e.g., reducing the number of VM function calls,
   or using specialized instructions for small BigInts).

 - Using algorithms with better asymptotic complexity for large BigInts.
I once implemented bignums using the method on the White paper (for the native Scheme implementation Larceny).  I'd like to argue against going that route for SpiderMonkey, certainly initially but probably also long-term; implementing high-quality MP code is just a lot of work (which the above hints at by the phrase "using algorithms with better asymptotic complexity"), and when we have to involve the JIT and add new jittable primitives as well for several architectures (three, soon to be four), the work grows further.  And we'd have to beat GMP or something like GMP significantly on performance to be worth the work.  I am skeptical that we will be able to do that.

It seems to me that if we can use an off-the-shelf library, and perhaps in the limit open-code a few easy fast cases (if the library lends itself to that), we will have spent our resources more wisely.

Obviously several of the optimizations mentioned above would still be good.  And it's good for the JIT to know about bigints and how operations on them can be coalesced and commoned etc, but that has little to do with the actual MP implementation I think.

Would GMP be acceptable to link into SpiderMonkey from a licensing perspective? It is dual LGPL v3/GPL v2.

Good question, I don't know who knows the answer that question. NI Gerv as a start.
Flags: needinfo?(gerv)
There is some commercial nervousness about GPLv3/LGPLv3, but I don't know of any specific problem Mozilla has with it. (Of course, we can't ship GPLed code in Firefox.) Doing this would require some tweaks to about:license, but other than that, I don't see a problem as long as the code is actually shipped as a separate library as defined in the LGPL.

However, if there is an equivalent-quality non-reciprocally-licensed implementation, that would be simpler.

Gerv, GMP is typically statically linked in, not dynamically linked. Does this change anything?

Another alternative that's more loosely licensed is ttmath (http://www.ttmath.org/). I'm not sure how these compare in terms of quality.
It does make a difference. Here's the LGPL 3.0:
https://www.gnu.org/licenses/lgpl-3.0.en.html
and we have to find a way of doing 4 d). The one we'd want to pick is:

"Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (a) uses at run time a copy of the Library already present on the user's computer system, and (b) will operate properly with a modified version of the Library that is interface-compatible with the Linked Version."

I believe that means dynamic linking, right?

Gerv

Comment 7

So, are you saying that Mozilla could only use GMP if it's dynamically linked, and it is not license-compatible to statically link it?
Well, it could be license-compatible if we shipped Firefox in a way which made it still replaceable, but it seems to me that would be technically a massive pain in the behind, even if it was possible, so basically: yes. We need to dynamically link, or use something else. That's the "Library" (Lesser) GPL for you.

Re licensing: From this, it looks like LGPL allows static linking if the source is distributed, as in Mozilla's case--does that seem right to you? https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#LGPLStaticVsDynamic . Still, it might create some further restrictions than are present now.

Comment 10

2 years ago
When talking about licenses I am not an expert but one important aspect seems to be that GMP is licensed under the both licenses GPL2 and LGPL v3.

I am not sure if that means that there are two versions of the library (and you can choose which license you are using) or that all the code must follow the rules of both licenses at the same time.

Given that this is going to become (if all goes well) part of the standard would be great to have a common implementation under the hood for all the available browsers. GMP is the main library for arbitrary precision that you can find. There are many on top of it (MPFR for example) and it has been there for the last 26 years. As Lars T said, it is much better to rely on those libraries than writing from scratch one. 

I am evaluating other libraries that could fit but by far GPL seems a better match for now (if we do not take in account the License issue).


So, are we sure that GMP is not under the GPL2 and everyone could integrate it without any problem?

Hmm. Reading carefully, paying attention to the definition of "convey", it seems like it might be possible to statically link an LGPLed library into a fully open source application. 

I need to ask the FSF about this.

> So, are we sure that GMP is not under the GPL2 and everyone could integrate it without any problem?

GMP is also available under the GNU GPLv2. However, if we used it under this license, it would require all of Firefox to be GPLed. That is not feasible or desirable.

Thank you for replying so fast Gerv. It is automatically discarded then because even if it matches the technical requirements it is not feasible to build on top of it.

I am doing some research of how other languages implement it. I will post it when I find some library that could fit.

But surely that common implementation cannot be GMP, since parts of the other browsers are closed source (even if their JS engines are not) and could not link with GMP even if we assume LGPL?

Mostly I wanted to argue that the self-hosted technique advocated by JonL White is quite expensive to implement in practice if you want truly competitive performance.  I think it would be another question whether we all ought to try to collaborate on a liberally licensed C/C++ MP library for the somewhat limited needs that the browsers will have, either fixing up a library that already exists or building something from scratch.  That's real work too, and you don't get good performance without some machine code for carry propagation etc, but it doesn't involve changing and improving the JITs; and it can be portable among browsers and it's easier to invite collaborators.

No, that's not so. It's perfectly possible for us to use it; we just need to use the LGPLv3, not the GPLv2.

Closed source code can dynamically link with LGPL without difficulty, or even statically link if they distribute object code files (although that seems unlikely and uncommon). Whether they _want_ to is another question, but they are not legally prevented from doing so.

The above patch is an experimental implementation of the BigInt
proposal, including a new primitive numeric type; operator overloading
for BigInt arithmetic and comparisons; extensions to the standard JS
library; arbitrary-precision arithmetic functions, currently
implemented in JavaScript; and new syntax for literal BigInt values.

Some areas remaining for future work include:

 - Evaluating the performance impact on existing programs and
   eliminating any regressions (for example, due to type dispatch
   changes in the interpreter)
 - Optimizing BigInt arithmetic, probably by using GMP or a similar
   existing library
 - Modifying the increment and decrement operators to work with BigInt
   values
 - Adding TypedArray and DataView support
 - Making the BigInt library endian-independent (it assumes values in
   TypedArrays are stored in little-endian order)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry for the delay, I am not a spec person so I cannot acknowledge of the validity of this code.

From what I understand of spec processes, the goal is to get reference implementations and to compare them.  Is the JIT integration mandatory at this time?  Is there any performance aspect of BigInt which requires a JIT integration to prove that the API is acceptable?

Apart from the spec related question, such changes should better be separated into a patches which adds the feature in the runtime, and another set of patches to add it to the JITs.

Comment 20

nbp, there are a few goals here:
- Develop a full implementation so we can see if the spec is reasonable, if we should be changing something in particular about it, etc. So far, in developing this patch, Robin's found a number of instances of ambiguity and poor writing, which has helped me correct the text, but ideally it should also serve as a warning for bigger issues.
- Push this feature along and get it out there to users once it's far enough along in standardization. Mozilla could lead the way here and help inspire other engines to implement and ship the feature.

About JIT integration timing: I believe what you're suggesting is what's being done here. This patch adds BigInt to the runtime, behind a compile-time flag, and a follow-on patch (which has not yet been written) would optimize it.

Is there any more feedback you could give on this code, even if you're not a spec person?

Also, is there anything about the spec that makes it difficult to read and understand? Maybe I could address that with changes to the document to make it friendlier, if I know what the problems are.

I thought this patch included something like the minimum to not crash and burn if BigInt values accidentally made it into JIT'ed code. Which parts can be safely separated out?

This sounds incorrect.

We do not want to encode an unboxed BigInt as an untyped value such as Value.  The proper way would be to add a RValueAllocation for BigInt, and to decode it property in the SnapshotIterator.

On the other hand, a less JIT-intrusive way would be to cause a JIT compilation failure if we ever attempt to produce a MIRTYpe::BigInt within IonBuilder.

Yes, primitive type flags have to be less than TYPE_FLAG_ANYOBJECT; I'll change the ordering.

Regarding JIT support, I can put it in a separate patch, but I'm not sure how to reliably prevent JIT compilation of programs using BigInt. Is there a good way to detect BigInt usage from within IonBuilder? E.g., would it be sufficient to check for a BigInt type in the script's TypeScript array?

BigInt patch

Review of attachment 8882178 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

I skimmed the non-JIT parts and made some drive-by comments. Most of the code looks very reasonable to me. My main concern here is the choice to self-host most of the implementation. We've had other features in the JS engine (Promises, Streams) that's done the initially-selfhosted-then-had-to-be-ported-back-to-C++ dance. Though, the circumstances of those aren't apples-to-apples comparable to BigInts. Promises and Streams required more intricate interaction with the embedding ("host") itself, what with their use of job queues.

What is the main motivation of self-hosting? Is it for the ideal scenario of the JITs automagically generating good inlines?

I have no domain expertise in bignum algorithms myself and thus cannot really comment on the actual self-hosted implementation. Lars has already given some cons for not using a mature 3rd-party library, so I'll just add some of my reservations regarding self-hosting itself. How sure are we that we won't want to write custom inlinings for BigInt stuff in the end? That is, how much mileage are we getting out of the self-hosted methods for the JIT steady state? ISTM using self-hosted JS has obvious cons here: because we have to be careful not to overflow int32, the current way of manipulating BigInt digits seems more obtuse than necessary. A C++ implementation would straightforwardly implement digits as some machine integral type. Plus debugging mixed self-hosted stuff tends to be a giant PITA.

Thanks for the review, Shu! I'll incorporate your suggestions into the
next version of the patch.

Regarding the bignum implementation, my current plan is to switch to
using an external C/C++ library. There seems to be a consensus that that
approach is a better use of development effort.

The initial use of self-hosting was due to the patch's origins as an
implementation of typed values, where bignums would naturally be
implementing in JS. When the focus shifted to the BigInt proposal, it
still seemed to me to be a reasonable choice -- many compilers get good
performance using self-hosted bignums, and there are some hypothetical
advantages to that approach (e.g. inlining, control over integer
representation, avoiding FFI overhead). However, using a mature library
such as GMP will likely provide good performance for less overall
effort, so I think your skepticism is warranted, and I agree with other
commenters that using a third-party library is a better way to start.

If you do not inline any function in MCallOptimize, and you don't to unbox BigInt types, and you can just keep them as MIRType::Value.

Posted patch BigInt.diff (obsolete) — Splinter Review
The current version of the patch uses libgmp for BigInt arithmetic, supports most features from the current proposal, and passes all up-to-date test262 tests for BigInt. Direct compiler support for BigInt has been removed; instead, compilation should fail if a possible BigInt value is encountered.

Limitations to address in future versions:

 - there are still a couple of unsupported features in the proposal (notably Atomics and writing BigInt values to non-BigInt TypedArrays);

 - it may be possible to cause a crash during JIT compilation, although the current approach works for simple test programs;

 - performance for existing programs should be evaluated, especially when BigInt is disabled

Comment 36

Notes on JIT changes:

The original BigInt patch contained direct JIT support for BigInt as a new primitive type. In the current revision, the generic "Value" MIR type is used for BigInt instead of a new type, and the compiler has been updated to allow unknown primitive types in some contexts.

Several parts of Ion make assumptions about the set of primitive types available, and crash when a generic value with an unknown primitive type is encountered. For example, LTestTypeVAndBranch (used by the "Test" MIR instruction) counts the number of type tags a value might have based on a fixed list, and crashes if the count is zero for values with non-empty type sets. The workaround used is to fall back to using the C++ ToBoolean function for values without a known type tag.

There was a similar problem in the IC system: the type update stub generated for BigInt values always failed, causing a crash in the fallback function for type updates (which is not supposed to be reached in that case). BigInt values are now treated in the same way as "unknown" types, and add stubs that always succeed.

A few instructions still cause compilation to be aborted when used with BigInt operands. In particular, constant BigInts are not supported, since Ion stores the constant as an unboxed value.

Beyond making the diff much smaller, the current approach would be beneficial for future experimentation with primitive types, since the JIT can be used without having any special support for a new type.

I could pare down the initial patch into something easier to review, and then submit additional updates for various features. Something like:

1. initial patch adding the BigInt primitive type
2. BigInt JS class
3. arithmetic operators and type coercion changes
4. parser support for BigInt literals
5. Big(U)Int64Array
6. DataView methods
7. Atomics
8. JIT changes

#1-#3 would probably have ~3k lines modified in total; the rest would be a few hundred LOC each. Would that be a reasonable way to split it up?
One monster patch review over multiple weeks is going to be a real mess to review, and it'll take much longer than doing it another way.  I would avoid it at all costs.

As to the splitting, that seems like a largely reasonable way to split things up.  Unusable perf is probably a demerit that entirely blocks landing, tho, so I think a little reordering (to allow partial landings) is desirable.  I would move JIT changes a bit further up the patch stack to address that.  Maybe move 8 to between either 3-4 or 4-5?  (I assume you can actually do BigInt things without parser support from 4, just by explicitly constructing objects, I guess?)
Flags: needinfo?(jwalden+bmo)
Jeff,

The patch is currently phrased to have a compile-time flag guarding it, defaulting to off, to avoid shipping any performance degradation. Would it be OK to land it in the order Robin stated in that case?

and what doesn't:

There are no regressions with existing test262 tests, but the tests for

I split the first patch into three parts: the first defines the new value type, with an empty class and no-op methods; the second adds a libgmp dependency and embeds a GMP integer in BigInt values; and the third defines the class for BigInt wrapper objects.

Bug 1437995 will enable test262's BigInt tests for this patch series, although most tests won't work until more features are integrated from the original BigInt branch (which is still accessible from https://github.com/cxielarko/gecko-dev in the bigint-gmp-next branch).

I think it should be supported, although it should probably have its own bug. There are also proposed changes for WebAssembly and IndexedDB that could be implemented: https://github.com/WebAssembly/spec/pull/707 https://github.com/w3c/IndexedDB/pull/231

Comment 79

For review/upstreaming, it might make sense to consider parts 1-3 first, which define the BigInt primitive type and class without changing the rest of the language. Parts 1-19 are probably the smallest subset needed for useful BigInt support, corresponding to items 1-3 in comment 39. Parts 20-22 are all parser-related (for BigInt literals and increment/decrement). Parts 23, 24-25, 26, and 27 each implement independent features (JSON and TypedArray-related functionality) and could be reviewed separately.

Most changes are conditional and shouldn't have any effect unless the BigInt feature is enabled at configure time. The main exception is that ToNumeric is used instead of ToNumber in some places; ToNumeric stores its result as a JS value rather than a double, so that Number and BigInt primitive values can be distinguished. Also, some function parameters are changed to MutableHandleValues (either to allow ToNumeric to coerce values without copying, or to represent multiple result types).

Mm.  If this is a temporary "implementation", okay.  If not, I don't believe it's going to be acceptable for bigint equality checks to require a JSContext*.  Certainly it's a very code-smelly thing to have to do a TLS lookup to get one (at least outside debug-only code).  Anyway, as long as this tactic isn't in the final patch, okay.

I don't see a principled reason for bigint to be handled in this block.  ToString(bigint) does not access properties on BigInt.prototype the way ToString on an object might on the object or an ancestor prototype of it.  It also doesn't unconditionally throw like ToString(symbol) does.

I would instead prefer

I expect you probably copied this from the symbol case or maybe the !isPrimitive case, but I think the isString() case is a better model.  In particular, I'm not convinced this helper-thread assertion is sensible or correct, and symbols represent a special case that doesn't apply to bigints.  Something like

This doesn't work -- the return value of this function indicates whether an error was reported/thrown (or whether an attempt to do so was made and failed).  Returning false here will abort all subsequent execution.  Is there a test262 test upstream that this botch will fail?  I would assume so, but that must be verified.

Moreover, this isn't right.  Per https://tc39.github.io/proposal-bigint/#sec-serializejsonproperty you should be funneling bigints into the |if (vp.isObject())| block above, with futzing to how |obj| is calculated.  (Be careful that exactly *how* that toJSON property is computed, doesn't do so by passing the wrong |this| -- an unboxed bigint, or a boxed bigint if that's what's called for -- in the case where BigInt.prototype.toJSON is a getter function, or Object.prototype.toJSON is and BI.prototype.toJSON was deleted.  There also needs to be a test262 test for this.)

It also looks like you need to change the step 4 algorithm below to unbox a BigInt to a bigint, but maybe that's because this patch doesn't do BigInt objects yet or somesuch.  Just flagging that as an eventual necessity.  Tho, you could also have it throw/return false here immediately, too, rather than rely on fallthrough to the test in the other hunk in this file's changes.  Helper function could nicely common up the code for the two.

Make this a static function that accepts a JS::Handle<BigInt*>.  Formulating these things as member functions gets into awkwardness about whether |this| is still live or not, that static+handle functions entirely eliminates.

Also, if this returns only linear strings, which it probably does, it should return a JSLinearString*.  Makes various downstream operations more efficient.

These functions want to be hooked up to our memory reporting infrastructure, just as the ICU allocation functions are hooked up to our memory reporting structure.

1) You're stringifying twice here.
2) You're not actually using |str| after you create/init it.
3) You're not deallocating either string you've created here.
4) When there's an allocation failure trying to create the digit string, you're not reporting an error when you return false, so the effect of failure here would be to silently halt execution of the current script -- no bueno.

I think you can fix all this like so, but give me a double-check:

    using BigIntString = mozilla::UniquePtr<char, js_mp_free>;
    BigIntString str(mpz_get_str(nullptr, 10, num_));

C++ doesn't even allow you to define an array of zero elements, so this doesn't really work.  Or rather, I assume it only works because mpz_t is always under size 16 right now.

I think this is probably better done as

With the return-BigInt* change, you can common up some stuff:

    JS::BigInt* bi = v.isNumber()

This function (and toString below, too) doesn't handle wrapped BigInt objects correctly, e.g. created in other globals.

  BigInt.prototype.valueOf.call(new (newGlobal().BigInt)(0)); // should be 0n, instead throws

Look at what Boolean.prototype.valueOf does and follow its practice.  Please also add a test262 test for this -- $262.createRealm().global.BigInt should give you a constructor to create otherworldly BigInts.

args.hasDefined(0) so that |99n.toString(undefined) === "99"| properly, not throwing as it would now.  Make sure there's a test262 test for this.

In fact, I'm not even sure this Class is supposed to exist at all.  The language has basically moved away from having Foo.prototype be any sort of special thing at all, and I'm not sure this is supposed to exist.

But all our bootstrapping code is generally gnarly and fugly with N different ways to init things, so I can't remember if this really shouldn't exist or not.  I guess leave it as-is for now, and hopefully someone remembers this junk better than I do, or we can fix it in post.

We're not entirely great at include-what-you-use discipline, but you should add at least these other headers to cover the bases I can come up with off the top of my head:

#include "js/Class.h"
#include "js/RootingAPI.h"

I think you should be modifying GetBuiltinClass (called above) to return an ESClass::BigInt initializer, then handling it above in a largely natural way.  (Granted this is all somewhat silly -- an unboxed BigInt object is going to produce a bigint value that will cause a throw anyway -- but builtin-class handling is something that is generally desirable for BigInt objects, I think.  I can't imagine the structured clone algorithm wouldn't want to structured-clone BigInt objects, for example.)

This isn't right -- ToInteger converts non-finite values to 0.  You should be testing for the exceptional cases, then doing the setting and all.  You probably also should formulate this function like the spec does, even down to having an IsSafeInteger and such being called.  Please add /* Step N. */-style steps to the algorithm as well for easy comparison of algorithm against spec -- search for "Step 1" in the tree and you'll find some examples.  (Step numbers probably/hopefully aren't horribly unstable, but if they are, I guess we can deal then.)

If this is implementing https://tc39.github.io/proposal-bigint/#sec-to-bigint it should be just

JS::BigInt*
js::ToBigInt(JSContext* cx, JS::Handle<JS::Value> v);

because that function either returns a bigint or throws, and returning nullptr naturally maps to throwing.  No need for a Value-y outparam in this case.

Also assuming this is implementing that algorithm, it looks wrong -- it's not converting booleans to 0n/1n.  Is it supposed to do that, or is it implementing something else?

BigInt::toString as lowercase can stay here.  But the other two functions correspond directly to standalone spec functions, and they should be named consistently.

This all looks good to me.  I've got some comments, but none of them serious.

There's no support for relocating (compacting) big int cells, which is fine.  Please consider filing a bug so we don't forget to do this eventually though.

Please add the new type to ClearEdgesTracer in gc/DeletePolicy.h and GC.cpp.

It looks like you will eventually need a line for MallocHeap as well as GCHeapUsed since gmp mallocs memory outside the GC cell.  See lazy scripts for an example.

Doing markAndTraceChildren() here would be better.  These never have children to mark and this would avoid pushing them on the mark stack.  Then you can remove the MarkStack/GCMarker changes to enable that.

I don't think there's anything compartment-specific to a bigint, right?  In which case we can share them between the compartments in a zone.

In other words, if |bi->zone() == cx->zone()| we can just return.

There shouldn't be a reason not to GC here.  Calling Allocate<BigInt> with default CanGC second template parameter will work here and that will report an out of memory exception for you.

This isn't what you want here since this object will be allcoated by the GC rather than by malloc.

You should replace this with a sizeOfExcludingThis() method that returns zero, and change that to return the amount of memory gmp has allocated in the next patch.

Yes, it only needs the JSContext because it uses SameValue; it probably
should be using a BigInt-specific comparison, or maybe it could intern
BigInt values somewhere and just compare their pointers, like it does
for strings? Added a comment about improving this.

It was copied from the Symbol case; the helper thread check is probably

JSON support is added in a later part; this was added while splitting
patches, but isn't actually useful. Test262 has tests for wrapped
BigInts and it handles them correctly; I'll add a test for getter
functions.

These #includes were no longer necessary, but were hiding a missing
BigInt.h dependency in Marking.h.

I added that to the ZoneStats, updated in MemoryMetrics.cpp with

        JS::BigInt* bi = static_cast<BigInt*>(thing);
        zStats->bigIntsGCHeap += thingSize;
        zStats->bigIntsMallocHeap += bi->sizeOfExcludingThis(rtStats->mallocSizeOf_);

using a new sizeofExcludingThis method as suggested later (replacing
sizeOfIncludingThis).

Rebased onto master and renamed new files following the conventions in bug 1439026. IF_BIGINT is now defined in public/TypeDecls.h instead of jstypes.h so that it is defined early enough to use in other header files; there might be a better place to put it. I also moved a few misplaced #includes that weren't considered errors by check-style (due to being in #ifdef blocks).

Coercing a null pointer to a Rust reference is Undefined Behavior; don't do that. Does that even yield a bit pattern with a valid interpretation? If you need to support null bigints as distinct from NullValue() (and that would surprise me a lot), you should not use a reference as the argument to BigIntValue().

This flag is used only in the tests (because the enable_bigint flag used in the pretty-printer isn't accessible from the test function).

Yes. (I will test this in a 32-bit environment to make sure it actually works :))

I replaced this test with one that uses a real BigInt value, in a later commit where the constructor is available in JS. The null pointer isn't a legal payload value for BigInts. (In C++, BigIntValue asserts that the pointer is a valid GC cell; the Rust bindings don't check payload values to the same extent, but maybe they should.)

I was wondering why js_mp_realloc and js_mp_free needed to exist. I can see now it's because they have a different signature to realloc/js_realloc and free/js_free. It might be worth putting a comment about that on their definitions.

Put this at top level after the class definition, please.  The "pattern" of putting these things inside member functions falls over if the member function is never called *and* is in a template class, so better to do the thing that always works to model good habit.

It might be desirable to use mpz_init_set to only call GMP functions once -- faster if we use system GMP, or perhaps just 'cause GMP knows more about the state of things as it does its work -- but then we'd need to not call mpz_init first.  Something to ponder for eventual cleanup.

Mild preference for JSLinearString here, to specify the most-clearest type, even if the most-clearest designation might not matter.  (Or it might, here -- could be a JSString* overload will first try to linearize, where a JSLinearString* would not have to bother.)

Might as well just mpz_init(x->num_) here and let that init to zero.  Passing in 0 explicitly has to involve more work just in case the 0 weren't, tho for sure this is mini-optimization territory.

Don't put braces around this.

This is fine for now, but we might want to cache BigInt(0) and BigInt(1) at some future time when bigint use becomes more common, or we've reached the end of these patches and decided we have time to go back for inessential niceties.

Comment 159

The GCCellPtr test failed because part 1.0 changes the TraceKind enum and assigns 7 to TraceKind::Null, used for nullptr. This is the same as the pointer tag for the "out-of-line" TraceKinds. When a GCCellPtr has that tag, the TraceKind for the cell is looked up based on the AllocKind that was used for the location, instead of being stored directly in the pointer. 7 is also the maximum possible tag in the current representation; cell pointers are aligned to 8 bytes so only 3 unused bits are available.

Part 1.3 leaves TraceKind::Null at 7, but adds an explicit check for null pointers in the GCCellPtr::kind method. This doesn't conflict with the same tag being used for out-of-line TraceKinds, since nullptr is never a valid GCCellPtr target for those types.

Context for part 1.3: the GCCellPtr test failure was caused by the TraceKind changes in https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/diff/b424782cd5d1/js/public/Value.h and https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/diff/b424782cd5d1/js/public/TraceKind.h .

Review of attachment 8976753 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Hm. This patch by itself is fine, but I question the necessity for it. It doesn't seem like an awful thing to reuse 0x7 for Null, and make the adjustments to avoid confusing it with an out of line kind, but I guess I don't see why either BigInt or Script *requires* an inline tag value. It ought to be a little faster since you don't have to do a memory dereference. So it makes sense to use inline tags for the k most common types, but I don't know if k=8 vs k=7 is enough to justify colliding with the out of line types.

Between the two, I'm not sure whether it's more common to have BigInts or Scripts -- or rather, I'm sure Scripts are far more common, but perhaps when you're actively using BigInts you have a lot of them and so they'll matter more? Also, I could imagine that anything manipulating Scripts will be lost in the noise (especially if the memory dereference is going to happen anyway.)

I did a local build (without any of these patches), changing Script = 0x1 to Script = 0x7F, and at least no tests failed.

But I was curious about the frequencies we're looking at here. It's not just about how frequent various types are, since most things don't get put into a GCCellPtr anyway. So I histogrammed all GCCellPtr TraceKinds discovered in kind() during a jstests.py non262 run to get a feel for it:


0 BaseShape
0 Shape
0 Symbol
0 JitCode
0 ObjectGroup
0 LazyScript
0 RegExpShared
0 Null
38 Scope
72 String
706452 Object
3415716 Script

Alternatively, I histogrammed constructed GCCellPtrs (in checkedCast). It was a bit skewed because there are a lot of strings used in startup, so I subtracted all the startup ones out, and got:

0 JitCode
0 RegExpShared
0 LazyScript
17 ObjectGroup
18 BaseShape
37 Shape
2845 Scope
12143 Script
367138 Symbol
3212076 Object
4242662 String

(note that I didn't have Null in this one; it's not in JS_FOR_EACH_TRACEKIND and I had to add it when I switched from construction to reading.)

So according to these, Object and Script are the only ones that matter. (String and Symbol matter for construction, but it's no slower to construct an out of line kind than an inline kind.)

It would have been better to histogram a browser session, but that build takes too long and the content processes tend to shut down abruptly so it's a pain to report stats at the end. But this anecdata seems to point towards none of this mattering. I think that argues for code simplicity: just make BigInt be a new out of line TraceKind. (I assume it has its own AllocKind, so the kind can be read out of the arena like all the other GC cells?)

Once the dust settles here, I'll update the comments around TraceKind. There's some weird stuff in there: "Note: The order here is determined by our Value packing. Other users should sort alphabetically, for consistency." Say what? What does Value packing have to do with this, especially since the order is completely different? It also lies about Script's 0x1 being unused. I tried going back to the original commit, but it didn't make sense to me there either.

Oh! So *this* is why Value tags matter. I didn't find this code when looking into this stuff. (TraceKind::String has to be 2 to match the Value tag... which is 6? Wtf?) I really need to fix that comment. Thanks.

No sheriff should think of pushing this -- bug is a mess-o-patches and parts 1 patches scattered across here need folding together to land (so as not to break bisection), and realistically only someone following this to some degree can really grasp precisely what should be pushed and how (at least, not unless you left a comment precisely specifying exactly what to land, and pre-folded patches where needed).

I'll do that, grab up the subsequent patches, and then push parts 1 folded, then the rest of them, once I've gotten some solid try results.  Clearing checkin-needed keyword in the meantime.

Part 1.0: Define a new BigInt primitive type, with a GDB prettyprinter, Rust binding support, and a new out-of-line TraceKind.  (Disabled by default, implemented only incompletely, currently passing --enable-bigint will disable JITs, will be flipped on Eventually once every sub-aspect is in place, Don't Have A Cow, Man.)  r=jwalden, r=Ms2ger, r=sfink

Good run of patches here, and landed for here.  Probably can stick to separate bugs for implementing the remaining bits of this now, fairly simply, IMO.  Let's do that.  :-)

Is it supposed to be working already on Nightly builds?  It is not passing the BigInt tests on http://kangax.github.io/compat-table/esnext/ yet.
Not at all.  What's landed so far are some very basic fundamental bits -- there is a lot more fixing of this bit here, that bit there, this aspect, that aspect, before this could be considered complete.

Moreover, the parts that have landed are *turned off* right now and are only built if you pass a special flag when you compile the browser -- a flag our nightly builds do not have.  So you don't get to see much of the effect even of what's landed so far.

In short: patience, grasshopper.  :-)  This will come In Time.

"(1) If you statically link against an LGPL'd library, you must also provide your application in an object (not necessarily source) format, so that a user has the opportunity to modify the library and relink the application."

That means we would need to ship entire objdirs. That's part of why we have a separate shared library for LGPL stuff (liblgpglibs).
