we run plenty of successful svg tests on armv7, but this single test fails every time on armv6 builds:
REFTEST TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | http://10.250.48.220:30210/tests/layout/reftests/svg/non-scaling-stroke-02.svg | image comparison (==)
Similar to bug 790624, marking as blocking bug 784681 not for wanting to turn it off, but so releng can keep track of what is hidden vs not (after my chat with joduinn yesterday).
Jet, can you get someone to look into these failures?
The images are the same except that one of them has a scrollbar. Perhaps we could set a width and height on the outer svg element (would need to be x2 for the ref as stuff is doubled there) i.e. replace overflow="hidden" with width="250" height="700" in the ref.
Alternatively we could split the test into two and have the grad1 and grad2 bits in one test (exactly as now) but move the <use> tests of the rect to another file and move them nearer the top to avoid scrollbars.
Dividing the test in two is probably the best way to go.
I looked into this some more and you do have a actual bug on armv6. The scrollbars should be suppressed by overflow="hidden" but are not.
This test was not designed as a test for overflow="hidden", and I can fix it not to use that but that's just wallpapering over the issue.

The wallpaper patch works on Windows, I haven't run it on Try but it ought to make armv6 pass this test.
Green, other than that it'll be another 5 hour wait for WinXP.
Your plan is to land this and raise a follow up to cover the underlying arm6 scrollbar suppression failure?
I was considering that, yes. Now I'm thinking about letting it age, the way we let the OS X 10.7 test bugs age.
Around 60 minutes a run, 5803 pushes in August, so say 1200 a week, conservatively say 800 that trigger armv6, 800 hours down the tubes.
there is little point in continuing to run this if we keep it hidden and nobody looks at it. Do we just need to fix the test to account for the scrollbar? Maybe add a reftest.list condition for a preference?
There's already a patch here that suppresses the scrollbar on this test. That could land if you want provided you're tracking the scrollbar bug somewhere.
I believe the scrollbar issue is related to different screen/pixel sizes we have for armv6 builds. I know there are some differences, I just don't know what and why they would make a difference.
This test has overflow="hidden" on the outer <svg> element which should suppress scrollbars. It works on all other platforms and should be unrelated to screen/pixel sizes.
Joel - to investigate this issue, do you need access to an ARMv6 phone? We'd like to resolve prior to FF17's release.
I run the armv6 builds on a tegra (armv7 chip). Most likely this can be reproduced on other android phones, probably need android os version 2.3, not 4.0.
jwatt - would a fix for this svg test failure fall under your purview? We'd like to resolve for FF17 prior to an ARMv6 release. Let us know if you don't have access to, or can't reproduce on, an ARMv7 device.
SVG already investigated it and determined that the problem is that an overflow="hidden" test has scrollbars, which is the exact opposite of overflow="hidden", and already wrote a hackaround patch that just removes the single test which shows that it is broken, but due to not trusting us to fix it rather than treat sweeping it under the rug as good enough, does not want to commit that hackaround.
Oops, missed the word "correctly" before "not trusting us" :)
Last of three, Jet passing on to you to assign to someone who can work on this in the next few weeks so we can build & ship our first ARMv6 builds with working/passing reftests.
should be addressed by bug 804641 - adding qawanted to confirm.
Android Armv6 opt R4 does not show this failure going back through the weekend.
No longer needs to block bug 784681, since Armv6 tests are not hidden, since we worked around it for now.
The toolchain upgrades in bug 825453 mean that this bug is no longer a problem. Resolving as fixed.
