Attached file

This issue has subverted detection by our tools because when running with e10s we don't get a crash report of any kind (sanitizer logs, minidump, etc). This makes it very difficult to reduce so the attached test case is reduced. This issue also does not seem to reproduce under rr.

Thread 275 "GraphRunner" received signal SIGXCPU, CPU time limit exceeded.

Another trace from an ASan debug build m-c 20200717-fa0ad42a026f

SIGXCPU is expected and this can be reported in a debugger even when there is a handler.
Do we know that this signal is terminal?

Usually a signal handler would be installed.
It would not be installed if there is an existing handler, in which case SIGXCPU could incorrectly still be generated. Only the first such thread would be demoted because gRealtimeLimitReached would be reset.
But AFAICS, we don't have any evidence that there is an existing handler involved in this bug.

(In reply to Karl Tomlinson (:karlt) from comment #2)

Do we know that this signal is terminal?

Yes that is how we came across it. The process terminates (crash page displayed) but no crash logs are generated (ASan or breakpad).

Flags: needinfo?(twsmith)

We need to understand why the handler and the js interrupt machinery Karl put in doesn't work, then.

Another confusing thing is that we expect the sandbox to prevent atp_promote_current_thread_to_real_time() from succeeding from the content process, but I don't see any prefs set to disable the sandbox. Perhaps the system does not support what the sandbox requires.

so that this happens even when the content sandbox is not enabled.

CubebUtils::InitLibrary() is called during ContentProcess::Init(), before the
event loop is run in XRE_InitChildProcess().

This usually fails due to sandbox policy.

When the sandbox is disabled, the realtime promotion can result in SIGKILL
if/when script runs too long. This can be re-introduced when thread demotion
is moved to a thread that is not blocked on script, which may be part of
the solution to

Depends on D84941

The signal handler was not installed because ContentChild::RecvSetProcessSandbox() is not run when the sandbox is not enabled.

Resolution: --- → FIXED
Target Milestone: --- → 81 Branch

The patch landed in nightly and beta is affected.
:karlt, is this bug important enough to require an uplift?
If not please set status_beta to wontfix.

For more information, please visit auto_nag documentation.

wontfixing other branches because they are only affected when the sandbox is not in effect.
