Description

6 years ago
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #675078 +++

Once bug 650411 lands, we only need to use the GC lock only to synchronize between the main and the background thread when the latter is finalizing/allocation. The rest of the use cases for the lock should be removed.

This is probably no longer relevant.
