Add macro for b2g permission code


(Core :: DOM: Core & HTML, defect)

Not set





(Reporter: evilpie, Assigned: evilpie)




(3 files, 4 obsolete files)

With e10s enabled we suddenly started running b2g only permission checks. We should have an easily findable way to disabling these on desktop for now.
I talked to some of the build folks and they suggest something like #ifdef MOZ_B2G && MOZ_PERMISSION. Arguably there are not to many places to fix anyway.

So here is the idea of this patch, have MOZ_APP_PERMISSIONS be always true on B2G and fail is somebody disables MOZ_PERMISSIONS while enabled app-permissions. I have never done anything with, so I don't really know what I'm doing.

This patch actually uses the new define to disable most of the permission code that I know is causing problems.

--enable-permissions for --enable-app-permissions.

That being said, is there really a need for a configure option? If you need testing on non-b2g environments, you can still set MOZ_APP_PERMISSIONS in .mozconfig.

That sounds good, I don't think we really need a flag for this.

Looks reasonable to me, but I'm not really a peer.. I suppose you can land if you're eager to, as it's all ifdef'ed code, but I'll leave the pending review flag for Jonas so he has a chance to take a look at it.

(Please run on tryserver first to make sure it doesn't break b2g/android!)

And don't forget to address Glandium's comment 4

I'm not sure this is "app" specific. But rather specific to if we want child processes to run in security sandboxes or not. So maybe use a macro name that indicates that better.

I tried removing this pref, but somehow this looks really weird now. Any suggestions on how to make this nicer?

Please don't use an AC_DEFINE for something that is only used in one place.
Do MOZ_CHILD_PERMISSIONS=1, and let AC_SUBST deal with it (which, without such a value would have achieved nothing)

Then, in the appropriate, add:

Thanks for reviewing. Is this more what you were looking for? At some point I really need to try learning this...

Looks like we do test some app permission code on Desktop: I guess we could just disable the tests?

Okay let's do it then.

Shouldn't you use MOZ_APP_PERMISSIONS (or whatever you renamed it to to address sicking's comment) rather than MOZ_B2G? Probably best to get someone who knows this test to review.

Attachment #794038 - Flags: review?(bugs)
So basically the idea is to disable the test when we disable all the permission checks. In theory that would mean these would run on B2G, but this two tests are actually explicitly disabled with the b2g.json file. I don't think this is really my problem at the moment and I would like to land these patches.
