I suspect this is a product of recent changes around decoding processes. Is there a specific test case that triggers this we could use to confirm the regression range?

Component: Audio/Video → Audio/Video: Playback
Flags: needinfo?(twsmith)

A Pernosco session is available here:

I don't have a test case for this issue. I got this rr trace while trying to capture one for bug 1680314 (which is very unreliable and unreduced, still trying to get a rr trace).

:jya, this looks like a result of 1595994, can you take a look? It looks like GetManagerThread() is returning a null ptr.

Flags: needinfo?(jyavenard)

We're in the middle of shutdown when RemoteDecoderManagerChild::InitForGPUProcess got called.

Would have been an existing issue before 1595994.

Don't have bandwidth to look into this one at the moment; it's an easy fix especially with the pernosco trace being available.

:bryce can you take this one?

RemoteDecoderManagerChild has a number of functions that may be called
asynchronously. Many such functions assert that they can get the manager thread
and that they are on that thread. However, if we've already shutdown, the thread
they fetch will be null. Since we can enter shutdown while async executions of
these functions are pending, we may fail our asserts.

To avoid this, we instead check if the manager thread is null in these
functions, if so, we assume we're in shutdown and bail. If the thread is not
null, we continue as before and assert we are running on the thread as expected.

I haven't modified RemoteDecoderManagerChild::GetSingleton in this way because
it appears the function is always called synchronously, but have amended the
assert message to make that expectation clear.

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

Bug 1680310 - Gracefully handle functions running after we Shutdown in RemoteDecoderManagerChild. r?mattwoodrow

Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request

  • User impact if declined: Unlikely to affect end users, but interferes with fuzzing by having over eager asserts. This fixes asserts firing in normal edge cases (shutdown).
  • Is this code covered by automated tests?: No
  • 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): The patch tweaks asserts to avoid them firing during shutdown. The pattern followed already exists in the file but was not used everywhere. The changes are small and are bringing in line a few cases where the pattern was not followed.
  • String changes made/needed: None.
