try {

crashes js debug and opt 32-bit shell on m-c changeset 78fde7e54d92 with -m, -a and -n near null.

Locking s-s just-in-case even though this seems like a null deref.

autoBisect shows this is probably related to the following changeset:

patch #1

The closure analysis done for NAME ops could return the current script, which is a problem if the script has not been marked as an outer function as its active call object will not be updated in prologues/epilogues.

This was not caused by chunk compilation, but was induced by it since this situation could not come up with whole method compilation (which would abort on the QNAMECONST and other opcodes which make the frontend throw up its hands in resolving local name accesses).  I'll put together another patch to make sure we do not do any compilation in scripts which contain any uncompileable opcodes (generalizing bug 726799), which should cut off any more strange new cases which could not have occurred before chunked compilation.

patch #2 (3b8ad7252ccb)

Patch to ensure no parts of scripts are compiled when they contain uncompileable opcodes.  This is pretty ugly but I think it's a good fail safe to put in and avoid hard-to-fuzz problems with weird rare opcodes.

[Approval Request Comment]
User impact if declined: Defensive patch against potential crashes caused by compiling part of a script which would not have been compiled at all before bug 706914.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Should be low risk, patch changes a fair bit of code but should not change semantics at all. If this is too much for aurora, patch #1 is more restricted (just fixes a crash).

Yeah, it should.  The first push was causing us to not compile large portions of many benchmarks.

Great :-)

Graphs-new has since confirmed this, eg:[[74,131,15]]&sel=1329852891000,1330025691000&displayrange=7&datatype=running

Drivers decided to take patch 1 for aurora here. Minusing this one, and I'll approve the first patch.
