Marking s-s until investigated because this is GC related.

Possibly related to recent weak map marking changes.

autobisectjs shows this is probably related to the following changeset:

The first bad revision is:

date: Fri Nov 15 16:40:44 2019 +0000
summary: Bug 1593399 - Rework how mark colors are handled in weakmap marking r=jonco

Guessing related to bug 1593399?

Regressed by: 1593399

There are two problems here. First, it is possible to OOM during regular marking (before entering weak marking mode) when updating the weak key table, and so we need to be able to cancel the weak marking stuff (and fall back to iterative marking) at any time.

Second, we shouldn't be doing anything with the weak key table during regular marking in the first place! I must have messed that up when I merged things together for the altered color handling in bug 1593399. So I will undo that for now -- but I'll still fix abortWeakMarking() so it can be called at any time, because I'll need that for incremental weak marking anyway.

Is the testcase from #c0 something suitable for landing in-tree? Also, is there a user impact which justifies Beta backport consideration for Fx72?

This should have gotten a security rating before landing. I'm marking it sec-high as it is looks like it is a couple of GC issues, and thus it should have also gotten sec-approval before landing.

Keywords: sec-high

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: sec-high regression

I tried to make a more reliable test case out of #c0 and failed. That test reproduces the problem across a number of different versions, but it depends on an exact allocation count. I hoped that oomTest would remove that dependency, but I could not get it to reproduce that way.

Oh, oops. I did explicitly read through the sec-approval rules before landing, but I somehow thought that this had made it into the 72 nightly (the regressing change landed in 72).

I would probably argue for sec-moderate. Although there are 2 issues fixed here, one of them should only result in a minor perf improvement. The other is only triggerable via an OOM at an unlikely point.

I have not requested backport yet because there is still a regression in bug 1596943 that I wanted to track down. This fix is probably fine to go in, but is unlikely to resolve that regression by itself. A further fix might require modifying the same code. If it would help to backport this, I'm fine with that. I don't think we'll be seeing any crashes in practice that this would fix, other than fuzz bugs. The bug this fixes would also be very hard to exploit (not just because of the OOM targeting problem.)

Not tracking based on the sec-moderate re-rating. I'll leave the 72 status as affected for now though in case we end up uplifting.

Bug 1597206 - Refactor enterWeakMarkingMode slightly

Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request

  • User impact if declined: Some misbehavior on OOM that might lead to UAF. Also, one of the changes here seems to have fixed a stability problem (bug 1597827) that would likely result in some number of crashes.
  • Is this code covered by automated tests?: Yes
  • Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: Yes
  • Needs manual test from QE?: No
  • If yes, steps to reproduce:
  • List of other uplifts needed: None
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): Although this is tricky code, the changes here mostly remove the possibility to encounter some tricky cases and at this point have been tested for quite a while in Nightly. (The code after these patches is much simpler as well.)
  • String changes made/needed: none
