Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1pre) Gecko/20080910003607 Mnenhy/ SeaMonkey/2.0a1pre

File a new Bug according to Bug 453708#c16

SeaMonkey comes by default with the JavaScript-Debugger which was enabled. almost in the Windows Zip Builds. 

Enable TraceMonkey for Content and also chrome causes a lot of crashes from jsd. I add some Crash-IDs from Bug 453708:



Mac [@ libjsd.dylib@0x25d1 ]:

With todays Build i got reproduceable crashes running JS-Benchmarks at SunSpider and 
Also will crash zooming in several times, see Bug 453708.
And with todays build SM crashes when I try to join #seamonkey with both TM and JSD enabled. 

Disable the JavaScript-Debugger Add-On avoid the crashes. 

So I think it would be better to disable the JSD by default before releasing the SeaMonkey Alpha.
Flags: blocking-seamonkey2.0a1?

Emphasizing the temporariness of any such measure.
Summary: JavaScript-Debugger should be disabled by default in SeaMonkey → JavaScript-Debugger should be disabled by default in SeaMonkey2a1

Weeks ago, I would bet, that I would never make such things in my life. After a lot of trouble I get this one when open #seamonkey with JIT chrome and content and also JS-Debugger enabled, hope this is the wanted *real* stack trace:

So, this 1) happens only when TraceMonkey is being enabled, which it isn't by default, and 2) in jsd, not in venkman code itself?

1) is not on by default, so I don't see why we should care too much about that for alpha, it's known to be experimental for now
2) means it happens in core code that is always in the app and would be triggered by FireBug/FireChrome or whatever it is that hooks into jsd as well there, so this is an issue that doesn't just affect SeaMonkey and venkman.

Additionally, could you try with a build from September 10 or later code? We had another TraceMonkey merge that should have fixed a number of known bugs there.

where _PR_MD_LOCK means: EnterCriticalSection(&((lock)->mutex))

inc     dword ptr [eax+10h]  ds:0023:00000010=????????

this means that the lock was a null pointer (mutex is +10h from the start of the lock structure), which in turn means that lock->ilock = 0

but this doesn't make sense, because the lock in question seems fairly well guarded, and we intentionally leak all of them :) [i.e., there's no code path to delete any of them or null them out].

please find me on irc, one approach is to just share your .dmp w/ me:
.dump /maipwd /u /ba /c "comment" file

and the other is that i talk you through things. (please don't expect me to build, my envs aren't really up for that)

Indeed, on Mac and Linux jumpTable can only point to one of recordingJumpTable and interruptJumpTable.

Perhaps there's a Windows bug due to Windows still using a switch-loop?

I can surely reproduce this bug on Linux. We have website (it's corporate, so i can't post a link here) and if i have JIT and Venkman enabled, it crashes. Disabling Venkman or JIT resolves problem.

Assignee: general → graydon
I have a crash that looks similar -- but not identical -- to this bug. It's based on the decompiler crashing when running sunspider with the JIT and firebug both turned on. I've isolated the bug I'm looking at down to the range of revisions between 8062a7d3dba6 and 63ba972636ad, which was the introduction of upvars on Aug 21.

Diagnosing this with Brendan presently. It appears in this case to relate to eval scripts that use upvars not propagating their enclosing function to the debugger. But it makes no sense that this might relate to the disabled-ness of the JIT (since it's supposed to be disabled anyways). Investigating further.

Meanwhile, here is a quick diagnostic patch that just turns off the use of JSOP_GETUPVAR: if your bug goes away when this patch is applied, we are looking at the same bug. If not, I should open a second bug.

patch that disables the JIT when the debug service is active

As best I can tell, this patch shuts down existing JIT activity and prohibits further JIT activity when the debug service is active. It makes no attempt to "re-enable" the JIT when the debug service "turns off" either; this is conservative. 

The patch alone does not free us from crashes, however; there still seems to be some misbehavior specifically inside the Tofte testcase, when the JIT is "enabled". But it might fix the original reporter's case. Not sure. I'm still crashing in a different place, related to JSOP_GETUPVAR decompilation.

What's most mysterious to me about this is that the JIT is never being entered. A breakpoint on js_ExecuteTree no longer fires, because of this patch; yet I still get a crash on Tofte when (and only when) the jit.content preference is set to true.

As before, fully disabling the emitting of JSOP_GETUPVAR causes the entire test scenario to work. Both with and without this patch. Though this patch *does* accomplish the general "shut the JIT off when debug is active" stated purpose of the bug.

Further advice, help testing or figuring out what on earth is going on would be appreciated.

ok with a debug build (thanks to bernd) at MozCamp'08... it looks like hookData = 0xdadadada [ JS_FREE_PATTERN (deallocated JSArena - GC()d) ]

-		(JSInlineFrame *) fp	0x07d3bd6c {frame={...} callerRegs={...} mark=0x07d3bd6c ...}	JSInlineFrame *
+		frame	{regs=0x0012f384 slots=0x07d3bddc callobj=0x078b08c0 ...}	JSStackFrame
+		callerRegs	{pc=0x082e15f5 ":" sp=0x07d3bd6c }	JSFrameRegs
		mark	0x07d3bd6c	void *
		hookData	0xdadadada	void *
		callerVersion	0xdadadada	JSVersion

so, neither hookData nor callerVersion are ok.

                if (hookData) {
                    hook = cx->debugHooks->callHook;
                    if (hook) {
                        hook(cx, fp, JS_FALSE, &status, hookData);

jsd_FunctionCallHook(JSContext *cx, JSStackFrame *fp, JSBool before,
    jsdc = (JSDContext*) closure;
    hook     = jsdc->functionHook;

jsdc = 0xdadadada from the caller, and we're going to die.

I didn't have time to track down what wasn't properly filling in those fields (I had to catch my flight - which wasn't really in any hurry to take off, 60+mins w/o A/C; 80mins delay).
Hah. Mystery solved. I was incorrect in believing that it doesn't crash with the JIT off. It does. Tracking two bugs at once here. Untangling: my tofte-upvar fault is over in bug 461801 now. Let's keep this one focused on "turn off the JIT when debugger is on".

timeless: is your comment 14 here using the patch I proposed above (attachment #2 [details] [diff] [review]) or are you just reproducing the original fault in general? I do not know how to further reproduce this bug *without* the approach I was previously using.

Comment 16

just reproducing the original.
Ok. I was assuming this related to firebug, but I actually can't reproduce with it. If I use venkman instead, I can reproduce by turning on the debugger and vigorously exercising

If I apply attachment #2 [details] [diff] [review] above, I cannot produce a crash this way. So I think it fixes the bug. I'm trying a minimal variant of it now, since I'm a bit worried about the cost of the proposed technique.
Created attachment 345018 [details] [diff] [review]
minimal solution to the bug

This patch appears to solve the bug -- at least removes my ability to reproduce it on -- with minimal intrusion: it just stops making *new* JIT-based JS contexts when the debugger hooks are present, rather than chasing through the existing contexts trying to shut them down. I'm not sure whether I like this one or the former one better -- the former is more thorough but this is much less invasive -- so I'll leave it not-obsolete, in case we want to go back and do it instead. 

I worry, though, that if we do this seamonkey will simply not get the JIT by default. Does it really ship with the debugger active?

I'm also not sure if the r? request is correct here, or whether I need sr. The nsJSEnvironment file may be someone else's turf, not just js-engine. Suggestion?

minimal solution to the bug

The JS_Set*Hook APIs take null to mean "Clear" -- can we hook into those to re-enable later? Followup bug, no need for patch to grow here.

Pushed in revision b0d41235146a. 

Brendan: since the patch pushed is predicated on the non-nullness of the debug hook, it actually reverts to constructing JSOPTION_JIT JSContexts when the debug hook is cleared. I've confirmed that if you disable firebug, the JIT re-engages.

I'm still a bit worried about seamonkey here. Is the debugger on by default? If so we're going to be "non-JIT" by default there, to match. I don't see much else we could do though, considering the two don't play nice together.

I think the debug hooks are already enabled as soon as SeaMonkey has been launched. Maybe something needs to change in Venkman, someone who knows more about Venkman than I do needs to comment on that.

something like this seems to be more correct as you should let those other js api consumers easily disable jit, if not automatically do so in the presence of a jsapi debugger.

conceptual changes - not tested because i'm on a mac-ppc which can't possibly build anything

so... the code in question really pretends to create JSInlineFrames, but it really doesn't properly initialize them. this is purely a bug in spidermonkey.

If the code doesn't want the debugger to run, it'd be sufficient to *properly* fill in the JSInlineFrame.hookData field w/ null.

Someone w/ a compiler should be able to verify that such a variant (basically omitting the second half of this patch) fixes the crash.

Timeless, good catch -- I couldn't tell from your comments, is this a complete fix for the symptom?

Realize it's a "conceptual" patch, but it's also a patch that is close to being ready for checkin, so I'm reviewing.

> #ifdef DEBUG
>     newifp->frame.pcDisabledSave = 0;
> #endif

Blank line before comment-line, please.

>+    /* debugger call hook data */

Generally we want sentences for comments that take up one or more lines (capitalized, full stop).

>+    newifp->hookData = 0;
>+    /* dynamic version of calling script */
>+    newifp->callerVersion = cx->version;

Ditto on both nits.

We can't JIT a non-default version script AFAICS. This could be problematic if version has runtime significance (it has in the past, although we try to make it compile-time where possible). Could use a separate bug on this item. Using cx->version is ok for now.

>+    JSInterpreterHook hook;
>+    /* Init these now in case we goto out before first hook call. */

Nice sentence-comment, but put the hook decl below it and initialize in the decl:

>+    hook = cx->debugHooks->callHook;
>+    newifp->hookData = hook(cx, &newifp->frame, JS_TRUE, 0, cx->debugHooks->callHookData);

And null-test hook before calling it and assigning to hookData, with an else clause that nulls hookData -- just as the code at inline_call: in jsinterp.cpp does.

more correct patch

OK, Fallen tested attachment 345073 [details] [diff] [review] and it needed a cast for JSVersion. Other than crashing in some accessible code (unrelated, bug filed, patched, fixed), Venkman worked. So I believe changes like this should be the complete correct fix.

this version includes a cast there and more comments.

brendan's comment indicated to me that i grabbed the wrong version field - so I'm now pulling the one from script which I think is more correct. Filing a follow-on bug for considering versions can be done later.

I don't have a build environment handy, I will try to get a try server build for this (I will need to find my credentials and figure out how to use it), so this patch as with the previous might not compile, but I think it will.

Please use standard major comment style here (as nearby comments do). We are allowing Harbison&Steele style comments in jstracer.cpp for now (to avoid breaking too much of Andreas's style-brain ;-), but you are here introducing yet a third major-comment style.

>+    newifp->hookData = 0;

Good fix, I should have been explicit.

Nit again.

You forgot the else clause that nulls hookData.

I can confirm that timeless' 2nd patch fixes the crash under the debugger, which I can still reproduce here. I've not been able to reproduce a dromaeo crash. But I'm inclined to think that he's right and disabling the JIT entirely due to the presence of the debugger was overkill. It looks like the JIT can handle it ok on its own, simply by aborting traces containing JSOP_TRAP. Neat!

Comment 31

10 years ago
I suggest landing the patch and then add the following features in a separate bug:

- Flush the JIT cash every time a JSOP_TRAP is added or removed.

- Compile JSOP_TRAP into a LIR_x with a new exitType (DEBUGGER_EXIT) and end the loop (endLoop) at the JSOP_TRAP. This will force native code to exit whenever the location of JSOP_TRAP is hit.
Cash for Your Trash - Fats waller ;-)

This sounds like a plan!

We use NULL not 0 (you know this), but I'd rather you just use the else clause as noted in review.

Is this an mq patch? It seems incremental on the last one, but the last one didn't land yet (or you didn't give an hgweb link in the bug for its landing).

Again, don't null twice. There is no risk of call-out; if there were, it would bite anything, since the frame is not fully initialized until very near the bottom of js_SynthesizeFrame. Null once in the else clause...
