Using the test patch in bug 833127, I'm hitting another alloc/dealloc mismatch on mozilla-central (revision 91b9995f9ac7) when manually running the TestStartupCache test:

Attached patch testcaseSplinter Review
I forgot to also mark the operator new that don't take a mozilla::fallible_t in the previous patch. Can you try this one?

Confirmed, this is working \o/

Looks like mozalloc.h was already trying to use always_inline, but failing for two reasons:

* Not including the correct mfbt file
* MFBT not defining MOZ_ALWAYS_INLINE to something that forces inlining in debug builds :-(

Let me know if this fixes the bug for you and if try is also happy I will add a big explanation and ask Jeff Walden for review.

Also seems to work :) I also upgraded Clang in the middle though, I hope that didn't influence this testing.

A try push is at

The change to mozalloc.h should be clear, without including mozilla/Attributes.h we depend on the include order in other files to get MOZ_ALWAYS_INLINE or not.

I could not find why we currently have


but this bug has a case where we do want to inline, even on debug. Another option would be to have a MOZ_REALLY_ALWAYS_INLINE, but if we don't need one that is better.

As to why we want to inline even on debug builds:

We expect to be able to replace all variants of operator new and delete. The problem is that some of them are forward declared in system headers and get explicitly marked as having default visibility.

Having default visibility, if they are not inlined it is up to the linker if we end up using ours or the one provided by libstdc++.

We found this with asan because one version of new has a mozilla type (mozilla::fallible_t) and gets hidden linkage. The operator delete is generic and is forward declared in a system header with default visibility. The net result is that we can our new and libstdc++'s delete.

Much agreed about not having MOZ_ALWAYS_INLINE_FOR_REALS_YO and doing this instead.  I have no idea why this was ever this way.  I guess we'll find out when we land this!
