To quote the URL
"libjpeg-turbo is a high-speed version of libjpeg  for x86 and x86-64 processors which uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE2, etc.) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4x as fast as the unmodified version of libjpeg, all else being equal.

libjpeg-turbo was originally based on libjpeg/SIMD by Miyasaka Masaru, but the TigerVNC and VirtualGL projects made numerous enhancements to the codec, including improved support for Mac OS X, 64-bit support, support for 32-bit and big endian pixel formats (RGBA, ABGR, etc.), accelerated Huffman encoding/decoding, and various bug fixes. The goal was to produce a fully open source codec that could replace the partially closed source TurboJPEG/IPP codec used by VirtualGL and TurboVNC. libjpeg-turbo generally achieves 80-120% of the performance of TurboJPEG/IPP. It is faster in some areas but slower in others."

Fedora already working on incorporating it in their distribution.

License is wxWindows license for some parts and LGPL for the rest.

You'll probably need to consult with licensing@mozilla.org about the license. See guidelines here: http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/license-policy.html

When looking at third party libraries for the video decoding and YCbCr conversion LGPL was an issue.
Using libjpeg-simd is probably an easier option here than libjpeg-turbo license wise.

Comment 3

According to
http://libjpeg-turbo.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/libjpeg-turbo/trunk/README-turbo.txt

"Some of the optimizations to the Huffman encoder/decoder were borrowed from
VirtualGL, and thus the libjpeg-turbo distribution, as a whole, falls under the
wxWindows Library Licence, Version 3.1.  A copy of this license can be found in
this directory under LICENSE.txt.  The wxWindows Library License is based on
the LGPL but includes provisions which allow the Library to be statically
linked into proprietary libraries and applications without requiring the
resulting binaries to be distributed under the terms of the LGPL.

The rest of the source code, apart from these modifications, falls under a less
restrictive, BSD-style license (see README.)"

So it seems that wxWindows license is a more liberal version of LGPL and the rest is BSD (I was mistaken in the initial posting)

Sorry for the bug spam

Regarding libjpeg-simd

From the Google translation of http://cetus.sakura.ne.jp/softlab/jpeg-x86simd/jpegsimd.html

"In addition, AMD64 (EM64T/Intel64) in 64bit mode environment (currently) not supported."

"AMD64 compatible version is under construction...(October 26, 2006: The production process is currently stopped. Seems slow release schedule. Sorry.)"

Jpeg-simd would have to be ported to 64-bit which from what I have read is a cumbersome task.
(In reply to comment #4)
> Jpeg-simd would have to be ported to 64-bit which from what I have read is a
> cumbersome task.

From the diffs between the 64-bit version and the 32-bit version it seems that the process would be mostly mechanical. In fact, it should be possible to use the same source for 64-bit as 32-bit like libvpx does. Further, the 64-bit versions in libjpeg-turbo should be under the same license as jpeg-simd so we should be able to just use them directly.

Hi, all.  I'm the maintainer and one of the creators of libjpeg-turbo, so I thought I'd throw in some comments.  For starters, libjpeg-turbo is not licensed under pure LGPL.  It uses the wxWindows Library License, which eliminates some of the viral provisions of the LGPL.  My understanding of the differences between the two is spelled out here:

http://www.virtualgl.org/About/License

I have confirmed with the wxWindows developers who created the license that this matches their understanding as well.  Essentially, it is our understanding that wxWindows nullifies Sections 6-7 of LGPL v2.1, which means you can statically link the Library with any application without requiring the application as a whole to fall under the provisions of the LGPL.  You are still bound by other sections of the LGPL, which means you would still be required to distribute source for the Library along with the application.

That being said, however, I can understand the desire for a fully unencumbered version of the source.  The only part of the code which is licensed under wxWindows is the Huffman encoding/decoding optimizations (portions of jchuff.c and jdhuff.c.)  These were developed while I was a Sun employee, so unfortunately I don't have the right to dual license them, or else I certainly would do so.

What I could do, however, is develop a mechanism whereby you could easily build the code without the Huffman optimizations ('configure --without-huffman-opt' or something like that.)  This would simply involve building libjpeg-turbo with the "stock" versions of jchuff.c and jdhuff.c from libjpeg-6b.  I could even go one step farther and make it so that the wxWindows-licensed files are not included in the distribution tarball if you 'configure --without-huffman-opt' and then 'make dist'.

This would slow down the overall performance by 20-25%, but it will still be miles faster than regular libjpeg on x86/x86-64 systems.
What DRC suggests seems like the smart thing to do, to begin with. Let's take the parts which are unambiguously BSD and still provide a significant win. 

We currently have a policy of only taking code which is compatible with all three of our licenses. We'd have to do some analysis on the wxWindows licence to see whether it fits our policy. (Please, people, stop rolling your own licences! :-) If someone could open another bug for that, that would be great.

But if it's not compatible in that way, I think it's highly unlikely we'd want to introduce a new licence into the Mozilla mix just for a 25% win in JPEG decoding (particularly if we'd already recently had a big win over what we'd been using for years).

wxWindows is actually a very mature license at this point-- it just isn't well known.  It was created to solve a specific problem -- allowing static linking of an open source library with proprietary code without forcing the proprietary application to fall under the terms of the LGPL, but also guaranteeing the open nature of the code (which BSD-style licenses do not do.)  OpenSceneGraph uses it, and that's where I learned about it originally.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to facilitate this on my end.  If you're just going to merge the code into your build tree, then you can just as easily replace jchuff.c and jdhuff.c with their original versions when you do that, but I'm still willing to add a configure switch to libjpeg-turbo as well.

This seems like it might be best option.

One thing I've been meaning to do is switch mobile to use the IFAST dct instead of the ISLOW dct. Android uses IFAST and in fact have an ARM implementation of the IFAST dct. Unfortunately, it is licensed with the apache license. Perhaps we can convince Google to relicense it?

We should write NEON SIMD code if we change to libjpeg-turbo.

Past year, Michael Moy tried to change to IFAST on some platforms by bug 416157.   But many test cases became failed.  If changing to IFAST, we have to modify many test cases, too.

DRC: the problem is not just incompatibility, but simplicity. A library under the straight LGPL would be compatible with the MPL, the LGPL and the GPL (our three licences) but would increase the licensing complexity of our codebase, something we have historically tried to avoid.

Comment 14

So, just so I understand, inbound code to the Mozilla project has to either be licensed under the tri-license or something less restrictive that can be re-licensed under the tri-license?  So if it were possible to re-license the offending code in libjpeg-turbo under your tri-license, then that would solve the problem?
Our goal is that people should be able to redistribute all the code that goes into our products under the terms of any one of the MPL, LGPL, or GPL. So:
-- code that is licensed with a license compatible with all of those (e.g., BSD) is fine
-- code that is licensed with multiple license options that cover the three above licenses is also fine (e.g., dual licensed MPL/LGPL, since the LGPL option is compatible with the GPL as well)

Note that we don't relicense other people's code. E.g., when we import BSD-licensed code into our tree, it keeps the original license.

Comment 16

Unless I'm missing something fundamental, I think wxWindows-licensed code could be legally redistributed under all three licenses.  However, I fully understand the desire not to introduce new licenses into your code tree.

One question-- do you currently copy the libjpeg code into the Mozilla source or do you build it separately?
(In reply to comment #16)

It's in our tree, but it's not by any means the original libjpeg, as it's been patched to pieces.

OK, then it seems as if merging in the "turbo" features (minus the Huffman coding) into your existing code tree would be the way to go.

Original license of SIMD code is http://cetus.sakura.ne.jp/softlab/jpeg-x86simd/jpegsimd.html#conditions

In Japanese, "この SIMD 拡張版 IJG JPEG software の使用条件については、オリジナル版の IJG JPEG software の使用条件が適用されます。"

In English by Google Translate, "This SIMD extension for IJG JPEG software terms of use, the original version of the IJG JPEG software is subject to terms of use."

So, original author who is MIYASAKA-san says that this code is same license as libjpeg.  I believe that license is no problem if we port MIYASAKA-san's code to our tree, not using libjpeg-turbo.

Gerv, how about?

Comment 20

7 years ago
Why does the idea of using the old libjpeg/SIMD code keep coming up in this discussion?  This has already been covered multiple times-- libjpeg/SIMD does not have 64-bit support or many of the other bug fixes we made to libjpeg-turbo.

libjpeg-turbo also bears the same license as libjpeg, if you don't use our accelerated version of jchuff.c and jdhuff.c.

In short-- merge in libjpeg-turbo, minus jchuff.c and jdhuff.c, and there is no licensing problem.
There seems to be some confusion around what should happen here... the right thing, I think, is:

1. Look at our in-tree libjpeg and how it differs from stock libjpeg.

2. Based on that, either merge the delta from libjpeg -> libjpeg-turbo into our tree, OR merge delta of stock libjpeg and in-tree libjpeg into libjpeg-turbo, and then pull that in.

(minus j[cd]huff.c, of course).

I don't really know how extensive the changes in #1 are, and I don't know what, if any, conflicts there would be between the changes for -turbo and our tree version of libjpeg.  But I think it's worth it to find out; the perf wins wouldn't hurt as we try to do decode on draw, and it sounds like there are some pretty significant ones here.
Forgot to ask -- who wants to make a patch? :-)

Comment 23

After a cursory look at the code, it seems like libjpeg-turbo may want to borrow Mozilla's enhancements, where applicable.  In particular, the use of static tables in choice areas like RGB->YUV conversion is likely to improve our performance as well.

Also, there is some of the code which is going to conflict,  because your version already has some SIMD acceleration.  I think that most of it could be replaced with ours, but the areas in which you use SSE2 would probably need to be benchmarked against our version to see which is faster (integer IDCT, for instance.)

Our integer SSE2 idct is buggy (bug 477728), so while it would be nice to see how the performance compares, I think I would still switch to the libjpeg-turbo one even if ours is faster.

My guess is that we'll not want to include j{c,d}huff.c in our source tree at all, if they're encumbered with an incompatible license.  Is this right?

To the build team: Are we willing to add a dependency on nasm so we can get this library?  If I understand correctly, we'd need nasm on both Windows and *nix.

I have something which is building and running (with yasm) on x64.  I'd love to run some performance tests so we can see whether this is worth investing in further.

I figure I should try and run tprender tests, as in

  dist/bin/firefox -tprender -tp manifest -tpformat text

but this runs the test and produces no output.

Can anyone suggest a way to make this work or an alternative benchmarking methodology?

JPEG loading test

I used this to test some of mmoy's JPEG patches back in the day. It's got a bit of scatter, but I found that it was reasonably consistent if I did 10-20 runs (unfortunately, manually on each one). The images you see referenced in the file were just a bunch of ~3MB pictures from a digital camera.

I don't know what tprender does so I'm not sure it's useful. If you post a patch I can get some tp4 (page load benchmark) numbers to compare against our current baseline.
Trender isn't going to help because that's just repaint speed -- so will be after jpeg decode has already been done.  I think you'll have a hard time coming up with an in-browser benchmark, though decoding a number of (very) large images is probably the best you can do..

Comment 36

Some preliminary performance results, on Linux x64.  We're comparing unvectorized libjpeg to libjpeg-turbo's vectorized 64-bit code.  In brief, it appears that the part of decoding that was vectorized runs 2.3x as fast as the unvectorized part.

These benchmarks were run on a quad-core Xeon W3520 (2.67GHz) running Ubuntu 10.04, kernel 2.6.32-23-generic.

Methodology:

$ perf record -ig dist/bin/firefox -tp manifest
    (manifest contains the path to a local copy of [1], which weighs in at 3,888 × 2,592 pixels, 2.95 MB)
$ perf report -g graph

If you're going to try this yourself, note that you need to save the result of perf report before rebuilding.  Your generated perf.data will be invalid (and unreadable) as soon as you modify the binaries.

perf only tells us how long we spend in a function relative to all the other functions in the program.  To work around this, I added a spin loop to the startup sequence.  The loop always does the same amount of work, so we can compare the fraction of our time spent spinning to the fraction of time spent in the JPEG decoder to determine the speedup.

Original:

    11.93%  jpeg_idct_islow
     8.94%  SpinBriefly()
     8.12%  decode_mcu
     7.59%  qcms_transform_data_rgb_out_lut_sse2
     5.71%  ycc_rgb_convert
     2.37%  0x000000001d2170 (ld.so)
     2.31%  jpeg_fill_bit_buffer
     1.97%  __pthread_mutex_unlock_internal

libjpeg-turbo:

    10.84%  SpinBriefly()
     9.49%  qcms_transform_data_rgb_out_lut_sse2
     7.04%  decode_mcu
     6.29%  0x00000000f90c10 (libxul.so)
     2.41%  0x000000001c8e80 (ld.so)
     2.36%  nsJPEGDecoder::OutputScanlines(int*)
     2.14%  __pthread_mutex_unlock_internal
     1.97%  pthread_mutex_lock

I think the unidentified libxul function in the libjpeg-turbo profile is libjpeg-turbo's vectorized jpeg_idct_islow routine.  If so, we can conclude that the speedup for this function is (11.93/8.94) / (6.29/10.84) = 2.30.  The speedup for the JPEG decoder as a whole is of course smaller.

Comment 37

Justin,

The comparison you made would only be valid if the two tests were equal in terms of total execution time, but my read of the above is that the amount of work done was the same but the execution time for both tests was different.  Is that correct?
(Assignee)

Comment 38

7 years ago
The assumption is that SpinBriefly() takes the same amount of time in both tests.  I don't actually know that -- all I know is that it does the same work.  It's the same code in both cases.  But with the assumption, I think we can compare execution times by normalizing the reported percentages against the percentage reported for SpinBriefly.

To illustrate, say we knew that SpinBriefly() takes 1s.  Then in the original case, we could say that 8.94% = 1s, so 11.93% = (11.93/8.94)s = 1.3s.  We'd similarly compute that the 6.29% reported for libjpeg-turbo counts for (6.29/10.84)s = .58s.  And then we'd conclude that our speedup is 1.3s / .58s = 2.3 as before.  But of course we don't need to know how long SpinBriefly is in order to do this computation.

Comment 39

7 years ago
Fair enough.  My other question is why the slow IDCT is the only accelerated function.  We've established that the accelerated Huffman decode can't be used, but aren't there other functions that can be accelerated using libjpeg-turbo?

(In reply to comment #39)
> My other question is why the slow IDCT is the only accelerated function.

Good question.  Here's where the other functions in the profile live:

qcms_transform_data_rgb_out_lut_sse2 : gfx/qcms/qcmsint.c
decode_mcu : jpeg/jdhuff.c
nsJPEGDecoder::OutputScanlines(int*) : libpr0n/decoders/jpeg/nsJPEGDecoder.cpp

So only the slow IDCT and decode_mcu are functions in libjpeg.  I was actually testing with libjpeg-turbo's jdhuff implementation here, and you can see that decode_mcu is substantially faster with libjpeg-turbo: (8.12/8.94) / (7.04/10.84) = 1.40x speedup.

I think we can.  jccol{mmx,ss2}.asm includes jcclr{mmx,ss2}.asm multiple times, and I think this is what's causing the hang.  We should be able to split up jccol into separate files, one for each include of jcclr.

yasm 1.0 on OSX 10.6 64-bit seems to be emitting incorrect 32-bit code.  At least, it works when I use nasm, but the yasm build decodes all jpegs as garbage.

The nasm flags I've used are:

  -fmacho -DMACHO -DPIC

and the yasm flags I've tried are:

  -fmacho -DMACHO -DPIC -rnasm -pnasm

and

  -fmacho32 -DMACHO -DPIC -rnasm -pnasm

> Do you know what the difference is in the generated code?

Well...here's *a* difference I've been looking at, in _jsimd_rgb_ycc_convert_sse2 (jccolss2.asm):

nasm:
  leal 0x00001bf3(%ecx,%ebp,8),%ebx

yasm:
  leal 0xffffffd3(%ecx,%ebp,8),%ebx

Here's more context:

..@12.adjust:
  pushl   %ebp
  xorl    %ebp,%ebp
  leal    0x00001bf3(%ecx,%ebp,8),%ebx    <---
..@12.ref:
  popl    %ebp
  movl    %ebx,0xffffff7c(%ebp)
  movl    0x08(%eax),%ecx
  testl   %ecx,%ecx
  je      0x00000412

Just the leal line is different between the two assemblers.

Here's the preprocessed source which is generating this.  It's the same for both yasm and nasm.

..@26.adjust:
  push ebp
  xor ebp,ebp
  db 0x8D,0x9C         <----
  jmp near const_base  <----
..@26.ref:
  pop ebp
  mov dword [ebp-(8-(0))*16-4],ebx
  mov ecx, dword[(eax)+8]
  test ecx,ecx
  jz near .return

Before we try and understand how a db plus a jmp combined to form a leal, let's look at the unprocessed source, from jcclrss2.asm:

It appears that we're taking the %1 == ebx branch in the macro above (compare the arguments to db).

The apparent key point here is that the db / jmp lines marked with arrows become a leal instruction.  Why?  I dunno.  But perhaps this is what yasm is interpreting differently than nasm.  I'll keep looking after lunch.

> Can you get it building with YASM? YASM is already a build requirement
> everywhere except Win32. It claims to support nasm-compatible syntax.

YASM won't work on Win32. YASM doesn't output object files which can link with /SAFESEH, so we can't link YASM object files into xul.dll. For libvpx we worked around this by converting the YASM assembly to MASM syntax using http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/media/libvpx/yasm2masm-as.sh 

Ideally we'd convince the YASM developers to fix their win32 safeseh section generation, or submit a patch which fixes that ourselves upstream.

Comment 58

Given that the code barely works under yasm, I'm not hopeful that we'll be able to easily translate to masm, unless the syntax for macros and whatnot is very close.  But it's definitely worth looking at.

For now, I'm just going to use nasm on OSX-32.  I think a new-enough version of nasm ships on OSX by default.  (My understanding is that the version of nasm that ships isn't new enough to build libjpeg-turbo on 64-bit, but there, yasm works fine.)  It would be really nice to get yasm to work, though.

ted, bsmedberg, cpearce: Do you have any advice as to how to proceed here wrt Windows builds?  It looks like the options are:

* Fix yasm so it works with /SAFESEH or otherwise work around this issue
* Ship nasm in Windows build package (assuming that some version of nasm works on Windows)
* Translate the libjpeg-turbo code to a msam-compatible syntax
* Ship libjpeg-turbo on Linux/Mac and use our current libjpeg implementation on Windows
I'm actually leaning towards the first option since we're going to be distributing yasm ourselves anyway...

Fixing yasm certainly sounds to me like the Right Thing to do.  It looks like there's some support for SAFESEH [1] [2], but perhaps it's insufficient [3].

I don't have a good grasp of what the issue is even after doing some reading, so I'm not sure I'm the right person to try and hack the assembler.  But if nobody has time to hack it themselves, I can try, provided someone can sit down with me and explain what's going on.

Comment 63

7 years ago
In response to the second option (shipping NASM on Windows), NASM does work fine to build libjpeg-turbo on Windows, but I don't know whether it also suffers from the /SAFESEH problem.  As with other platforms, you'll need NASM 2.05 or later to build the 64-bit version.

In response to the third option, you'd be responsible for maintaining any such translation, since it is of no use to the upstream project.
(In reply to comment #59)
> * Fix yasm so it works with /SAFESEH or otherwise work around this issue

Ideally we should fix YASM, as we need a working YASM for libvpx as well.

YASM has partial support for SafeSeh, but it doesn't go far enough. YASM ticket 139 seems to diagnose the problem. I don't know much about object formats or assemblers, so I'd need to get up to speed before I could be much help fixing YASM. Maybe an email to the YASM mailing list be helpful?

Success on Mac32!  Speedup of jpeg_idct_islow is

I'm not so good at reading Shark traces, but it looks like ycc_rgb_convert is also much faster:

  (8.3/3.2) / (1.3/4.7) = 9.3

But maybe the trace is somehow under-reporting for libjpeg-turbo.  In any case, I think it's faster.  :)

Patch v1 - Part 1: Removing libjpeg

The full patch weighs in at 3.8MB, which is too large for Bugzilla.  I've therefore split it into three parts: Removing libjpeg, adding libjpeg-turbo, and build changes.

There's little that's interesting in this patch; just a lot of - signs.

In the interests of full disclosure: I haven't tested this particular patch on all platforms.  It's working locally, and I'll of course push to try once the assembler is updated on the remote boxes.

I think we probably want configure to try to assemble the optimized code only if it finds a sufficiently new version of yasm -- otherwise, people with outdated versions are going to be confused by the hangs and incorrect code generation.  I have an XXX in configure.in for this; I'm not really sure how to do it.

Unfortunately this part is still too big for bugzilla.  Sorry about gzipping it.

Interesting bits here are probably just modules/libjpeg-turbo/Makefile.in and modules/libjpeg-turbo/simd/Makefile.in.
Fwiw, if we can create three self-contained patches in this order: add libjpeg-turbo, build changes, remove libjpeg and push them like that, that would be better than the order listed in comment 73, right?  And may be better than pushing a single mega-patch, though it's hard to tell.

I thought that it was kind of weird that jpeg got its own top-level directory, which is why I moved it to modules.

But I could move jpeg to modules/libjpeg-turbo and then put the libjpeg-turbo source on top of it, if we wanted.  That would probably reduce the patch size...

I would suggest doing the reverse. Patch libjpeg-turbo onto of jpeg in the current location, and then we can move it to saner place in a different bug.
brendan is king of repo locations, but my understanding is that jpeg-at-top-level is historical accident, and it could easily be somewhere more sane. (It's just that when we were on CVS, moving it was a big pain.)

In my opinion, it depends on whether the patch is useful or not. If the delta is reasonable enough to make it useable in the case of "oh hey, something broke when we upgraded to libjpeg-turbo", then we should patch it. But if it's not a useful diff, I think we should first remove it and then add it.

At the moment I'd probably prefer to put this in modules/libimg/jpeg, even if we eventually want to get rid of libimg (so that at least in the mean time, everything's in the same place). Joe might disagree though.

Given that this review is going to be more or less a rubber stamp, I'd like to at least know that it passes all our tests on all platforms first. Specifically, I'm concerned about our jpeg reftests, little-endian architectures like ARM, and architectures where we're not running the asm you're testing with. As such, I'm going to cancel review until we've got all that sorted out.

How much code changed? Do we need a security audit for this? (Not like the one we got for LCMS did us any good...grumble grumble). Dveditz, can you weigh in?

I think that's fair.  Releng is working on getting the requisite yasm version out to the build servers, and once it's out there, I'll push to try and see what happens.

To the question of how much has changed, the answer is: A lot, but not everything.  :)

The vast majority of changes are in the simd folder, which contains 22000 lines of assembly.  We're of course not using all of that.

We could slim down the libjpeg-turbo patch a bit by removing files we don't need, but I'm not sure it's worth messing with.

ok, I think we separate remove/add patches. a 2.4 meg jpeg library is bigger than we'd like it to be (the current one is 1.5 megs), but not quite worth making it harder to apply upstream patches by yanking things out.

I think we should actually require it. libjpeg-turbo hasn't had nearly the same security exposure as libjpeg so we should at least go through to look for areas of increased risk.
My understanding is that we don't want to add new stuff to modules/.

For video/audio we created a new toplevel directory media/ to contain third-party libraries (media/libogg, media/libvpx, etc). For gfx we've put third-party libraries under gfx/ (gfx/cairo, gfx/harfbuzz, gfx/ycbcr, etc). I think this policy is working well.

So I suggest creating a new toplevel directory for image codecs, say images/. Move libpr0n and libpng there as well.
This is a bit bikeshed-dy, but the fewer toplevel dirs we have the better; jpeg, png, etc. would fit in fine under 'media', I think.

I think we're all on the same page here, but I don't think it's fair to make this patch implement that change. We've already got libpng in modules/libimg, and so I think it makes sense to keep libjpeg with libpng until we figure out the right place for both of them. This is something I plan on getting to "soonish" (ie, after the branch).

We're failing some of the jpeg reftests tests on Linux.

In all but one case, I can't distinguish the libjpeg-turbo image from the reference.  The one exception is jpg-cmyk-2.jpg, where the libjpeg-turbo image looks a bit sharper than the reference.  I can put the rendered image up here if anyone is curious.

How should we deal with these reftest failures?  Do we just declare libjpeg-turbo to be the new gold standard of jepg decoding and change the references, or do we investigate what's causing the differences?
We definitely need to investigate what is causing these reftest failures. If there are bugs, they are likely to be very subtle, and so I'm afraid it'll be some hard slogging.

Start by finding out the magnitude of the differences. (1 pixel value - say r=125 to r=126 - can often be ignored as rounding differences, though not without determining where those rounding differences came from.) Use a screen magnifier that lets you view the pixel values under the cursor, or use something like Gimp that lets you sample any pixel on the screen.

Also, the reftest analyzer has code that'll circle the differences between two images. That might be helpful!

Finally, this doesn't need to block. I'll take a patch (on a relatively short leash), but I'd release without libjpeg-turbo.

I've tried to build FF/TB with this patch, but it failed because of a missing yasm (yasm: no such file or directory). After installing yasm via MacPorts it now builds just fine. So, does this mean, with this patch, yasm gets a new dependency to build mozilla applications? Or will yasm be implemented into the mozilla source?

On Mac OS X JPEGs are OK with this patch (quick visual test) if you build FF in x86_64. But if I build FF/TB in i386, than all JPEGs are misrendered.

Right now you can build FF to use the system libjpeg.  I wonder if we'll want to disable this with this patch.  libjpeg-turbo has a number of features we can use to make other code faster (see e.g. bug 584652, maybe bug 571739).  We could write code to conditionally call into libjpeg-turbo only if it's enabled, but since we won't be testing with libjpeg, it's probably safer just to assume we have libjpeg-turbo.

Patch v1.3

I'm probably not going to have time to get to this review that quickly as this is lower priority than some of the other work I'm doing. One comment I do have so far is that you should fix up the licensing documentation to match the code that we're including. i.e. the LGPL and WXWindows licenses should not be needed.

I can remove LICENSE.txt and LGPL.txt.  The only other place I see wxWindows and (L)GPL referenced is in README-turbo, but I'm not sure it's worth patching README-turbo to remove the references to those licenses.

Do you agree?

Comment 122

I should really clarify the language in README-turbo anyhow. What I mean that file to say is that the overall distribution of LJT is covered by wxWindows if the distribution uses the accelerated Huffman codec but not otherwise.

Now that bug 563088 has landed, I think this bug is more important. Changing back to a tab that hasn't been active for a while, I can visibly see images being re-decoded. If the speed gains here really are significant then this will help.
jlebar - can you throw together a try build with libjpeg-turbo based onto trunk? We'd like to see how noticeable the post-discarding redecode speedup is tabbing back to:

http://flavors.me/johnath
and
http://demos.hacks.mozilla.org/openweb/CSSMAKESUSICK/

after waiting a period longer than image.mem.discarding_timeout_ms * 2 milliseconds.

If it's significant enough, we may re-evaluate the blocking status of libjpeg-turbo.

I just pushed to try, but then I remembered that the build machines are still running the old, broken version of yasm.  I believe we'll get working Linux and Mac 64-bit builds, and maybe we'll get a working Linux 32-bit build.

It might just be easier for you to pull the patch, install yasm 1.1, and build it yourself.

Quick note-- the libjpeg-turbo subversion trunk is used for the latest & greatest (and not necessarily stable) code.  I would suggest continuing to base your in-tree copy of LJT on 1.0.1.  I will create a 1.0.x stable branch as soon as it is needed (i.e. as soon as any bug fixes come in for LJT 1.0.1.)

Is this going to make into FF4? If so, can it be marked as blocking final at least? Don't mean to rush of course. Just wish set my expectations appropriately. ;-)
This bug is *not* blocking, as the flag indicates. And at this point, I really don't think we should take it. We actually need to ship at some point.

Patch v1.3.1

I did not review the simd code as that's more work and lower risk because it's mostly just optimized versions of existing functions. I did go through the rest of the stuff, hopefully I was thorough enough (there was a lot of change).

A few of these comments are on Mozilla changes, the others are on the upstream code. I don't consider it critical that the upstream stuff be addressed before landing.

This change of type here is sort of interesting. It is extended to 64 bits on
Windows and changed to unsigned. 
The checkin comment for the change was "Bleepin' Windows uses LLP64, not LP64",
however it seems like the only code that needs the new size is code added by to jpeg-6b.
(jmemmgr.c and huffman encoder/decoder not included in this patch)

This change removes the type parallelism between jround_up and its sister function jdiv_round_up,
it's also sort of an abuse of the size_t type because the function is used for more than just
sizes of objects. Some callers haven't been updated and still do jround_up((long) val)

I'd suggest using a less general align-to-power-of-two function in jmemmgr.c, I didn't investigate
why the huffman code needs to round 64bit values

Attachment #471713 - Flags: review?(jmuizelaar) → review+
I strongly suggest updating libjpeg-turbo from 1.0.0 to 1.1.0 before taking time on complete reviewing. It will be wiser because many changes where made.



Significant changes since 1.0.0:

[1] The Huffman decoder will now handle erroneous Huffman codes (for instance, from a corrupt JPEG image.) Previously, these would cause libjpeg-turbo to crash under certain circumstances.

[2] Fixed typo in SIMD dispatch routines which was causing 4:2:2 upsampling to be used instead of 4:2:0 when decompressing JPEG images using SSE2 code.

[3] configure script will now automatically determine whether the INCOMPLETE_TYPES_BROKEN macro should be defined.



Significant changes since 1.0.1"

[1] Added emulation of the libjpeg v7 and v8b APIs and ABIs. See README-turbo.txt for more details. This feature was sponsored by CamTrace SAS.

[2] Created a new CMake-based build system for the Visual C++ and MinGW builds.

[3] TurboJPEG/OSS can now compress from/decompress to grayscale bitmaps.

[4] jpgtest can now be used to test decompression performance with existing JPEG images.

[5] If the default install prefix (/opt/libjpeg-turbo) is used, then 'make install' now creates /opt/libjpeg-turbo/lib32 and /opt/libjpeg-turbo/lib64 sym links to duplicate the behavior of the binary packages.

[6] All symbols in the libjpeg-turbo dynamic library are now versioned, even when the library is built with libjpeg v6b emulation.

[7] Added arithmetic encoding and decoding support (can be disabled with configure or CMake options)

[8] Added a TJ_YUV flag to TurboJPEG/OSS which causes both the compressor and decompressor to output planar YUV images.

[9] Added an extended version of tjDecompressHeader() to TurboJPEG/OSS which allows the caller to determine the type of subsampling used in a JPEG image.

[10] Added further protections against invalid Huffman codes.



Significant changes since 1.0.90 (1.1 beta1):

[1] The algorithm used by the SIMD quantization function cannot produce correct results when the JPEG quality is >= 98 and the fast integer forward DCT is used. Thus, the non-SIMD quantization function is now used for those cases, and libjpeg-turbo should now produce identical output to libjpeg v6b in all cases.

[2] Despite the above, the fast integer forward DCT still degrades somewhat for JPEG qualities greater than 95, so TurboJPEG/OSS will now automatically use the slow integer forward DCT when generating JPEG images of quality 96 or greater. This reduces compression performance by as much as 15% for these high-quality images but is necessary to ensure that the images are perceptually lossless. It also ensures that the library can avoid the performance pitfall created by [1].

[3] Ported jpgtest.cxx to pure C to avoid the need for a C++ compiler.

[4] Fixed visual artifacts in grayscale JPEG compression caused by a typo in the RGB-to-chrominance lookup tables.

[5] The Windows distribution packages now include the libjpeg run-time programs (cjpeg, etc.)

[6] All packages now include jpgtest.

[7] The TurboJPEG dynamic library now uses versioned symbols.

[8] Added two new TurboJPEG API functions, tjEncodeYUV() and tjDecompressToYUV(), to replace the somewhat hackish TJ_YUV flag.

That's fine. An interdiff would to have for a quick look over. Also, one thing that I forgot to mention in the review comments. I'd prefer that we only include the files that are needed for actually building libjpeg-turbo and not checking in all of the extra programs and documentation.

Do you mean upstream of libjpeg-turbo, i.e., in libjpeg?  libjpeg-turbo is a fork of an old version of libjpeg, so there's really no "upstream" to speak of.

It's an improvement in both speed and size, but probably not enough to make a compelling case for inclusion of the patch.  We've seen better results in JS & NSPR because they both examine 32 bits.  The libjpeg-turbo code only looks at 16 bits so there are less savings to be had from the BSR instruction.

Oh, I see; that's a change we made, but which isn't in libjpeg-turbo.

Until it's fixed upstream, why don't we just guard the #define's in jmorecfg.h?  We already keep that file out of sync with libjpeg-turbo's mainline.

Proposed upstream patch for addressing concern about jround_up() argument types.

Comment 163

6 years ago
I'll address the review comments that are relevant to the upstream code here:

(1) jround_up() argument types:  this was the result of a bad game of Celebrity Whack-a-Mole that I played while trying to port the code to Win64.  Jeff's idea of creating a local, power-of-2-specific round-up function for jmemmgr.c is a better idea, and I've done so in a new patch (attachment 522544 [details] [diff] [review]) (actually, I made it a macro instead of a function.)  Please let me know if that looks like a reasonable solution.

(2) RGB_{RED|GREEN|BLUE} macro conflicts on OS/2 (OS/2?  Really?):  This seems like an innocuous enough patch, although I'd rather have it in jmorecfg.h instead of jpeglib.h.  I'd also like to know more of the back story as to why OS/2 is defining those macros.  Is this a generic problem that anyone building libjpeg-turbo on OS/2 would encounter?  My lingering doubt here is that libjpeg supports OS/2, so I wonder why they haven't encountered this problem on that platform.  Is Mozilla including some header file that causes those macros to be defined?

(3) bitscan instructions:  I tested the proposed patch to make jcdctmgr.c use GCC 3.4+ compiler intrinsics to replace flss() with bitscan instructions, but I cannot observe any measurable speedup from this (tested several different image types and platforms, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit.)  If it were even 2% faster, I would agree to include it, but a performance patch that causes no appreciable increase in performance does nothing but needlessly obfuscate the code.

(4) The tables in jccolor.c are part of the optimized RGB-to-grayscale conversion routines.  These are pre-computed R-to-luminance, G-to-luminance, and B-to-luminance conversion values.  The problem with this approach is that it loses a bit of accuracy due to round-off, so I recently checked in code to the SVN trunk (1.2 working version) that uses new SIMD routines to perform RGB-to-grayscale conversion.  This is faster and eliminates the round-off issues, as well as the need for the tables in jccolor.c and the #ifdef in rgb_gray_convert().

(5) The rest of the concerns regarding jccolor.c have already been addressed in trunk as well (pulling rgb_red, rgb_green, rgb_blue out of the loop, etc.)

Attachment 522446 [details] [diff] puts the #undef's in jmorecfg.h, right above the #defines.

And just FYI, another thing that I'm currently being contracted to do is investigate rewriting the performance optimizations in j{c|d}huff*.  This will hopefully allow me to re-license those files in libjpeg-turbo 1.2.

I usually prefer functions over macros for the additional type safety and to avoid evaluating arguments twice (e.g. PAD(x, a++))

I'd be fine with dropping this altogether. If OS/2 still needs it, we can always add it back.

It's probably worth adding a comment to flss saying that it's not performance critical enough to justify using compiler intrinsics.

That sounds like a good solution to me.

This sounds great.

My experience has been that the compiler does a good job of optimizing out that duplication of effort, and the lack of overhead of the additional function call usually makes up for it, but in the specific case we're referring to, it doesn't matter enough to worry about, and using a function call is more consistent with the way it worked before.  Re-submitted as attachment 522583 [details] [diff] [review].

I was referring to the fact that PAD(x, a++) does a++ twice which is not what the caller is likely to expect. Regardless, I like the new version better.

There are unfortunately reftest failures on Windows with this latest patch.  Looking into it.

Why is support for arithmetic encoding/decoding disabled?

Don't we need to use the libjpeg v8 ABI in order to get this?
(In reply to comment #176)
> Why is support for arithmetic encoding/decoding disabled?

We haven't decided whether to enabled this yet. This is a separate issue and needs a separate bug as well as a lot more thought/research.

No, it works when emulating the v6b ABI as well.  It just adds two additional functions without breaking compatibility with the rest of the ABI.

Apparently this causes OOM in yasm 0.8.something we may need to up the min version
More specifically, with yasm 0.8.0.2194, which is the latest available by default with Ubuntu 10.04. yasm 1.1.0.2352 works fine.
Depends on: 646254
Fedora 13 has old yasm too

NOTE:  libjpeg-turbo trunk now contains a version of jdhuff.c and jdhuff.h (Huffman decoder) with the optimizations re-written and re-licensed under the same BSD-style license as the rest of libjpeg.  Looking into jchuff* as well, but I figured you were probably more interested in the decoder than the encoder.

Jesse, why did you nominate this bug for tracking-firefox5?

Comment 188

Because bsmedberg told me to in http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla.dev.planning/msg/bfc2fabaecacdd97.  Also because I think it should be listed on https://wiki.mozilla.org/Features/Release_Tracking to make sure it gets the right security reviews, license file additions, changelog entries, crash stats scrutiny, and whatever else people follow that page for.

That bug is for tracking the decoder.  I'm talking about the encoder now.
