Proposed patch

Similar to bug 530225, but for the set case.  This situation is simpler, since we were already basically calling the sprop setter on trace directly; this is just unwinding the onion-layers of that setter and leaving just the guts.  This applies on top of bug 530225.

Again, this only works if I can assume all the relevant slots already exist, etc; if not then we need to go through JS_SetReservedSlot.  I'd really like to avoid that if I can (esp. the locking).

And again, we could poke dslots directly here, I think.  Would that be ok?

This speeds up the slice test on dromaeo from 170 runs/s (after bug 530225) to
200 runs/s or so.  The overall js string tests go from 280 runs/s to 460 runs/s with this patch and the one in bug 530225.  That's almost within spitting distance of Safari (500 runs/s) and faster than Chrome (405 runs/s).

This looks good, aside from the adj_slot issue I mentioned in the other bug.

This is really good work. I'm pleased (and impressed) that it yields such a big speedup.

Er, I meant bug 530255 throughout.
Depends on: 530255
No longer depends on: 530225

I would like to randomly express my dismay with the fact that "string" tests in Dromaeo are gated by closure access performance. We need a decent benchmark suite.

Boris, hope you don't mind taking ownership since you are patching. If you want to hand off patches, just call for a volunteer new assignee. Great to see your work here, you are inducted into the TraceMonkey JIT-grooming troop!

This code is a brazen hussy, smooching jsfun.cpp and its manly static assertions that uphold the dslots guarantee! Please change this comment to reference the static asserts over there, and don't be coy about it! ;-)

This is tricky -- you need a uint16 cast, if I'm not mistaken, not uint32.

r=me with these changes and dmandelin's blessing,

Could be, but that code change is gone anyway with LIR-ification.

Better, stronger, faster

This passes dmandelin's upvar tests (at least as much so as m-c does, at least), and gets us up to 650 runs/s or so on the dromaeo-object-string tests.

OK, I ran full dromaeo (including the DOM tests, etc, not what runs on our tbox).  A lot of that stuff doesn't hit the upvar code, so the speedup across the board was only about 6%.  Still, better than nothing.

Nit: French spacing frowned upon in local style.

Nit: s/slots/slot/

This comment could be more explicit: "Because of the parent guard in guardCallee ensures this Call object is the same one on trace, and because once a Call object loses its frame it never regains one, ...."

Nit: no need to break this across two lines. Might be easier to read with a blank line before, though.

>+        lir->insStorei(box_jsval(v, v_ins), base, offset*sizeof(jsval));

Nit: space around binary ops.

Er, my wording is slightly off ("Because of the blah ensures blargh"), but you get the idea ;-).

Fixed the nits locally.
The intarwebs misled me on "French spacing" meaning two spaces after full stop, can you believe it? The wikipedia page adverts to the crazy inversion of the original meaning. I'll try to change. Vive la France!

6% speedup across the board from a 15-line patch is a big win in my book.

Well, it needs bug 530255 as well for the 6% thing.
