Is this related to bug 720778 at all?

Did you check if this was fixed in upstream chromium?  I'd be happy to pull a change from there, too.

>+  std::string shortened_name = std::string(name).substr(0, kMaxNameLength);
>+  // pthread_setname() fails (harmlessly) in the sandbox, ignore when it does.
>+  // See
>+  dynamic_pthread_setname_np(shortened_name.c_str());

What's the ownership model for the pointer here?  Please doc.

r=me with ownership clarified (/ proven correct ;) ).

I got the code from 'chromium/src/base/threading/', wouldn't that be upstream? The change doesn't apply cleanly so I had to make a patch manually.

I looked in bionic and it's implemented by copying name:

So it must certainly be the same elsewhere. I'll add a comment when checking in.

Pulling from upstream is good.  Would prefer you check the darwin docs, but r+ from upstream (hopefully) means someone else already checked docs.
