The main function of SS-1.0's date-format-tofte cannot compile due to JSOP_EVAL in a loop.
This probably depends on scope work because eval -> heavyweight -> needs call object.
date-format-xparb also.
This seems to be the main thing slowing down Baseline+Ion vs. JM+Ion right now on SS.  We don't Ion compile the function where tofte spends most of its time, so it always runs in Baseline, which is considerably slower than JM+TI.

The new stuff needed seems to be (a) call a stub for JSOP_EVAL, and (b) create an args object for the frame, which will be required.  It'd be nice if (b) wasn't actually necessary, and the arguments object was just created if the eval() actually tried to access it.

Looks good. r=me with comments below addressed.

Why does it not work? Eval-in-frame links fp->prev_ to the frame in which we are evaluating the expression, and StackIter just follows prev_. To avoid special handling for eval-in-frame with baseline frames, we should always use StackIter/ScriptFrameIter.

Use ScriptFrameIter to filter out natives etc (will probably fix eval-in-frame failures too) and if the same script is eval'ed recursively it's safer to do:

/* Ion does not compile eval frames. */
while (iter.isIon() || iter.abstractFramePtr() != *this)
