I'm not sure if this is the right component but it looks like the APZC bugs are filed here.

I have some WIP patches at https://github.com/staktrace/mozilla-central/commits/pzc that try to use the APZC in Fennec. Once I got events flowing from Java to APZC (on the Java UI thread), I got this crash:

Backtrace stopped: previous frame identical to this frame (corrupt stack?)

The problem seems to be in frame 6, where GestureEventListener::HandleInputEvent calls MessageLoop::current()->PostDelayedTask. MessageLoop::current() returns null because this is the java UI thread, and there is no message loop instance.

Also one of the parameters to the PostDelayedTask is a call to Preferences::GetInt which probably also shouldn't be there as it can only be called on the Gecko main thread.
Component: General → Graphics: Layers
Product: Boot2Gecko → Core
Summary: AsyncPanZoomController assumes the "UI/controller" thread is the gecko main thread → AsyncPanZoomController needs to run on a thread with a MessageLoop
Working on a patch that routes the PostDelayedTask out through GeckoContentController.

Created attachment 713987 [details] [diff] [review]

I'll push to try for testing since I don't have a B2G build set up locally any more. This compiles and works for Fennec (with my local implementation of PostDelayedTask).

Here is a better try push: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=d44e13e5155a
The one above didn't run any tests because I didn't pick the right platform.

Sorry for review lag.

>diff --git a/gfx/layers/ipc/AsyncPanZoomController.cpp b/gfx/layers/ipc/AsyncPanZoomController.cpp

>+void AsyncPanZoomController::PostDelayedTask(Task* task, int delay_ms) {

Nit: |aTask, aDelayMs|

>diff --git a/gfx/layers/ipc/AsyncPanZoomController.h b/gfx/layers/ipc/AsyncPanZoomController.h

>+  void PostDelayedTask(Task* task, int delay_ms);

(Same nit here.)

Looks reasonable to me.  r=me with nits picked.
