Marking s-s because this assertion could indicate some form of type confusion and has been problematic in the past. Also the test involves TypedObject.

OK, so def->type() is Object, but definiteType is Int32.

"def" is an MLoadUnboxedObjectOrNull, so having its definiteType be Int32 is quite unusual.

We're coming from IonBuilder::pushReferenceLoadFromTypedObject.  "name" in that function is "f", not surprisingly.  I don't see why the gname change (here applicable to "o") would affect this, except perhaps if it made things get ion-compiled where they did not use to before... I'm also not sure why the second assignment to Object.prototype.f matters (but it does!) it should be a no-op, because that value is already 42.

Anyway, in IonBuilder::pushReferenceLoadFromTypedObject when we do the bytecodeTypes(pc) call we get a typeset that has:

    flags = 8
    objectSet = 0x0000000000000000

which is what we see later (8 is TYPE_FLAG_INT32), but of course the .f get should be returning an object, right?

So the question is why the bytecodeTypes(pc) is getting bad type info...

Slightly simpler testcase below.

The main problem is that PropertyReadNeedsTypeBarrier returns BarrierKind::NoBarrier because we don't track type information for the o.f TypedObject property? It's possible this only affects TypedObjects and therefore is Nightly-only, but I'm not sure.

The object vs int32 thing bz mentioned is a red herring. That's the result of a bad heuristic in PropertyReadNeedsTypeBarrier: we attempt to update the observed typeset for an o.x lookup (when the observed set is empty) by looking at the property types for o.x. However in the non-singleton case we skip the receiver and look at the proto - there's no good reason for this and it can cause bad type information like this when properties are shadowed.


Object.prototype.f = 42;
var T = TypedObject;
var ObjectStruct = new T.StructType({f: T.Object});
Object.prototype.f = 42;
var o = new ObjectStruct();
    foo = o.f;

I think this is a bogus assert.  Typed object property types do not reflect the initial values of their properties --- null for object references, undefined for value properties --- and IonBuilder adds bailouts on these initial values if they are not included in the observed types for a read, e.g. pushReferenceLoadFromTypedObject.  Since there aren't any non-null values which can be read from this object, the MLoadUnboxedObjectOrNull will always bailout.  I don't see any callers which actually require the result of ensureDefiniteType to have the provided type, so this patch just removes the assert.
