Seem on today's m-i


  - flash phone and turn on bluetooth

Expected result:

  - bluetooth turns on

Actual result

  - Gecko crashes

This can be reproduced easily. The stack trace is shown below. I suspect that this problem is caused by the patch for bug 868130.

Blocker because Bluetooth is not useable.
If seens this assertion triggering during startup when Bluetooth was still disabled. So it's certainly not BT-only.

tzimmermann - I'm on PTO today, and don't have time to spin up a b2g build. Can you give this patch a try and make sure it fixes the crash? I can't even build it locally, because bluetooth isn't built on desktop.

The basic idea is that you're not allowed to just grab a random JSContext and pass it to functions - you have to push it first. This was the rule before, but this patch just made it more obvious when we get it wrong.

The fixes for this kind of bug are generally quite simple and straightforward, and always fix real bugs. As such, I'd appreciate if someone could shepherd this into the tree, and if people would avoid backing out bug 868130, because it's a huge set of patches that bitrot extremely quickly (also, backing it out would also require backing out bug 868110, which landed on top of it). Gabor should be able to help with any advice or reviews, and I'll be available by email for the most part (though may not be reading bugmail).
Sure, I'll give it a try. Sorry for interupting your PTO. Thanks for the quick response.

No problem! Sorry for the crashes. :-)

Shoot me email (drop the +bmo from my bugmail) if you have any questions. It'd also be good if we could get test coverage that would have failed here - when doing these Gecko-wide massive refactorings, I end up relying pretty heavily on "whatever is green on try". ;-)

Push the JSContexts that get used in BluetoothAdapter. v1

Review of attachment 753271 [details] [diff] [review]:

Looks good, if it builds it should work too. But I found some more similar cases around blue tooth (and some places else in Gecko...). Some follow up would be nice, I need to run now but a few hours later I will come back and can write some followups myself probably, but then I won't be able to review them...

Anyway, if someone is enthusiastic it's quite simple to fix them as Bobby described it, and a quick search for nsContentUtils::GetSafeJSContext() usages and GetNativeContext() usages should help finding the suspicious places quickly. In case of the former, it should be replaced by an AutoSafeJSContext cx; that does the push automatically.

FYI: The patch alone doesn't fix the problem, gecko just crashes at a different position for the same reason.
I also need this patch to make BT work again. I tested this by pairing and transfering a file to the phone.

+    AutoPushJSContext cx(sc->GetNativeContext());
     if (NS_FAILED(nsTArrayToJSArray(sc->GetNativeContext(),

This will solve the problem, but you want to use the cx in the function you call instead of calling GetNativeContext() again.


     AutoPushJSContext cx(sc->GetNativeContext());
     if (NS_FAILED(nsTArrayToJSArray(cx, ...

both places.

Also could you also do the same in BluetoothManager.cpp? 

And in BluetoothHfpManager.cpp something like : 

-  JSContext* cx = nsContentUtils::GetSafeJSContext();
-  if (!cx) {
-    NS_WARNING("Failed to get JSContext");
-    return NS_OK;
-  }
+  mozilla::AutoSafeJSContext cx;

Then blue tooth will be clean, and I will start writing patches for the rest of gecko. Is there a way to add test for this crash by the way or it needed to be tested manually?

I'm sorry for keeping you busy with all this, but I think this is the fastest way to get it landed...
Here is the updated version you asked for. Putting up the first patch for review was more an afterthought.
