Description Mats Palmgren (:mats) 2012-10-23 09:53:11 PDT
Work around Android armv6 compiler bug 790624.
"Again" because this was apparently worked around once before in
bug 642205 but it seems it's broken slightly differently on armv6.

This is a (new) workaround for the *compiler bug* in bug 790624.
It fixes the testcase attached in that bug in my local armv6 build.

I've pushed this from my Aurora tree to Try, not sure if that works:

Apparently not.  Here's a mozilla-central Try push instead:

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): 
User impact if declined: potential layout errors involving scrollable elements
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): tested in local armv6 Android Firefox
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): very low risk, it's just reshuffling the code a bit to avoid a compiler bug, there's no functional change
String or UUID changes made by this patch: none

This bug was spawned from bug 790624 which has tracking-firefox17+.
I don't know if it's needed for beta, please mark it beta- if not.
Comment 6 Mats Palmgren (:mats) 2012-10-23 17:39:22 PDT
Silly me, 17 is in beta now... so, yeah, definitely needed there.

Comment 9 Mats Palmgren (:mats) 2012-10-24 20:01:06 PDT
QA: please also check if any of the other tests in bug 791103 was fixed by this.
