Attached patch crypto-switch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Most of the legacy crypto API doesn't work in content processes. But the new function getRandomValues was fixed to work for FirefoxOS (Bug 673432). So we should at least expose those, and shim the rest of the functions. I hope we don't need to forward them all later, but I am not sure what our deprecation plan is.

Attached patch catch nullptr (obsolete) — Splinter Review
For some reason ContentParent::RecvGetRandomValues wasn't checking if Crypto::GetRandomValues returned nullptr, that seems like a mistake to me.

catch nullptr

Review of attachment 801822 [details] [diff] [review]:

Killing the child seems too harsh here.  I think you should just send back a zero length array and throw an exception on the child side.

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do here.  Why would you de-virtualize all of the methods on mozilla::dom::Crypto but not do the same for the methods on nsCrypto?

I asked Brian Smith to comment in this bug on whether we can go ahead and ignore the other functions.
