Patch v1

Why is mP2A stored as a double if we only use it as a PRInt32?

(If there's a good reason, please rerequest review on this patch.)

I have no idea (and had thought the same myself, but presumed I was just missing something).

So would you like me to just change it to PRInt32?
Attached patch Patch v2 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Presuming the answer to comment 5 is yes, this updated patch stores mP2A as PRInt32 rather than a double, silencing the build warning.

Failed try, by causing reftest failures on all platforms along the lines of:

Patch v2

Given try results, clearly there's a reason!

Joe, I may have just messed up the v2 patch, given there are other instances where the variable mP2A are used (not all in scope admittedly):

Could you take a quick look before we resort to casting, in case changing mP2A to PRInt32 is still a better approach?

Thanks! :-)
Joe, any ideas about comment 9? Thanks :-)
Ah, yes - you're clearly right that changing the type is wrong, since it's used internally in nsRenderingContext as a double. Your first patch is therefore correct!

Great, thanks Joe :-)

Patch for checkin based on the v1 approach, but updated to tip to take account of bug 678222 landing (which changed the return type of AppUnitsPerDevPixel() to be PRUint32).
