Description Jan de Mooij [:jandem] 2012-07-13 08:13:07 PDT
Currently when a script is hot, we destroy the JM JITChunk, rejoin to the interpreter and enter Ion. Bug 771130 needs to access JM ICs from IonMonkey so we shouldn't destroy the JITChunk.

The main challenge is that if we don't destroy the chunk, JM callers may still call the function.

So when we want to enter Ion, the patch sets a flag to destroy the chunk later and NULLs out the JITScript entry pointers. This seemed to be the simplest and most effective way to prevent ICs from calling the function.

This name seems weird.  Maybe jit->mustDestroyEntryChunk or jit->mustDestroy?
