[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: Full browser DOS, recent regression.

Loading this page (on Linux at least):

Hangs the whole process.

This is a recent regression, I ran mozregression and got:

That sounded pretty strange to me, but turns out I do have an xbox controller connected via USB. And after unplugging and re-opening nightly, loading the page does, in fact, not hang the browser. So it is after all quite likely to be due to that bug.

cmartin, can you take a look?

Ah, I spotted the bug.

StartGamepadMonitoring() can end up in AddGamepad, and acquire the lock
again on the same thread, effectively dead-locking.

This is a regression from bug 1657404. Relevant stack:
