This is causing issues in fuzzing because it triggers frequently and looks like a real security issue (while it is not, involving Debugger). Marking as fuzzblocker.

Paul, do you have any way to find the right person who might look at this issue?

Jim, this fuzzblocker is probably related to the recent Debugger changes around generator frames.

autobisectjs shows this is probably related to the following changeset:

Jim, is bug 1551176 a likely regressor?

Yes. I'm able to reproduce; taking.

Sorry I didn't respond, I started looking for a regressing change but didn't find it before a public holiday.

Flags: needinfo?(pbone)

Okay, we have an analysis for this.

Debugger creates a Debugger.Frame for a generator frame. This establishes various relations:

  • Debugger::generatorFrames maps the generator call's AbstractGeneratorObject to its DebuggerFrame.
  • The DebuggerFrame's GeneratorInfo is set to point to the AbstractGeneratorObject.
  • Compartment::crossCompartmentWrappers includes a DebuggeeFrameGenerator mapping the Debugger and the AbstractGeneratorObject to the DebuggerFrame.

Then, the generator frame throws. This removes the first two relations above: the entry in generatorFrames is removed, and the DebuggerFrame's GeneratorInfo is removed. But the DebuggeeFrameGenerator key is left in crossCompartmentWrappers. I thought this was okay, since I couldn't find any other code in Debugger.cpp that bothers to clean up the crossCompartmentWrappers entries we create for all our other Debugger.Foo objects.

But it's not okay: if the AbstractGeneratorObject becomes garbage and the GC collects the debuggee zone but not the debugger zone, then the absence of an entry in generatorFrames means that Debugger::traceCrossCompartmentEdges isn't able to alert the GC that the debuggee's compartment's wrapper map may need to be cleaned up. Eventually GCRuntime::markCompartments tries to consult the wrapper map entry for the compartment of the wrapper's referent (the AbstractGeneratorObject), but the referent is gone.

I have a fix, but really, since those three relations should always be in sync, the code should reflect that requirement, so I need to rearrange things a little bit. Otherwise we're just kicking the can down the road until OOM fuzzing finds some way to make the three come out of sync again.

(In reply to Jim Blandy :jimb from comment #6)
If I understand correctly there is still an entry in the wrapper map for the AbstractGeneratorObject, yet it is collected and the entry ends up containing a dangling pointer. I think this is wrong. It doesn't work this way for non-debugger wrappers. In that case the GC conservatively marks the referents of wrappers in zones that are not being collected.

Here's a slightly simpler test case; run with --no-ggc:

var g = newGlobal({ newCompartment: true });
  function* g3() {

  function next() {

  function ggg() {

var dbg = new Debugger(g);
var frame;
dbg.onDebuggerStatement = f => {
  frame = f;

The test case in comment 0 takes about thirty seconds to run, whereas the above has no loops. So I think we should not land the original test case.

Without this patch, addGeneratorFrame may be called from any realm, and enters
the debugger's realm to call DebuggerFrame::setGenerator. However, we would like
to merge addGeneratorFrame and setGenerator, and call the combined from various
points which are already in the debugger's realm, so it would be a little nicer
to simply make the function assume it is called from the debugger's realm.

Later in this patch series, we will be gathering up all the code to manage the
association between DebuggerFrame and AbstractGeneratorFrame objects into a pair
of functions, one to establish a relation and the other to tear it down. The
removeif method combines iteration and entry removal, but we would rather have
entry removal live next to the code that tears down the rest of the association.

In preparation for that, this changeset replaces the sole use of removeIf with
its (not very large) definition, so that the entry removal can be more readily
moved into another function.

Depends on D35605

Merge Debugger::addGeneratorFrame into DebuggerFrame::setGenerator, and expand
the role of clearGenerator to fully undo the effect of setGenerator.

The association between a Debugger.Frame referring to a generator or async call
and the underlying generator object must be recorded in five separate places, as
a transaction: either all or present, or none are present. To ensure this is
true, this patch places sole responsibility for emplacing all those relations in
a single function (setGenerator), with another function to tear down those
relations (clearGenerator) as its inverse/antidote/complement/antagonist (in the
anatomical sense)/what-have-you.

Actually, when a Debugger.Frame is GC'd, we cannot reliably undo some of the
connections, and in fact can let the GC take care of those for us, so the
tear-down function clearGenerator is split into two overloads, one which is
suitable for use from a finalizer and the other which takes care of the entire

Depends on D35606

Another way to fix this bug would be to have Compartment::traceOutgoingCrossCompartmentWrappers also treat debugger keys' referents as incoming edges, instead of considering only JSObject* keys as it does now. This would cause the AbstractGeneratorObject and JSScript to be held live, avoiding the crash. However, since the bug only occurs when the generator call has completed, and the Debugger.Frame has been cleared, there isn't actually any need for the AGO and script to be held alive.

This bug is creating a huge amount of GC crashes in current fuzzing that are very hard to filter. Can we accelerate review/landing for this?

Yep, I'll review it today.
