Crash Data


(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is 
report bp-ba67ca30-9cde-4de7-8f3c-d3bfb2130921.

I get this crash signature consistently as follows:

1. Load
2. Press 'play demo'
3. Start the game (press high resolution)
4. Wait a 5-10 seconds until it crashes
I see this in Aurora as well. It did not happen in Aurora 9-16, but on 9-20 (after the latest merge) the problem does show up.

I sometimes see a hang of the browser instead of a crash. To investigate that, I tried to run the browser in gdb. But then nightly and aurora both segfault in gdb during startup of the demo, which is earlier than this bug happens. Stack trace I see in that case is

I bisected on nightlies. The first bad nightly is 9-12 which is last week.
Alon, by any chance do you have the cset range for the 9-12 nightly?

The segfaults in gdb during startup are, I believe, innocuous, just caused by the operation callback.

I can reproduce a problem on every time, but it's a hang, not a crash.  Once the process is hung, breaking in gdb shows the main thread always with the stack:

I see 200% CPU utilization, so I think this isn't just a simple deadlock.
Actually, all the threading stuff was a red herring, I think; when I disable parallel compilation/parsing, the problem still reproduces (now on the main thread).

Stepping through the instructions, I see an iloop where the switch(opd->type()) in LIRGenerator::visitToInt32 is jumping to right above the switch.  Printf'ing opd->type() shows MIRType_Float32 which is indeed absent from the switch, so I think this is just another missing case of float32.
I see a hang some of the time too. It either crashes or hangs.

Changeset range is It does have some commits mentioning float32 in there (but I don't think I see the main landing of float32).

Btw, how do I disable the operation callback from tripping the debugger?
(gdb) source $(PATH_TO_MOZ)/js/src/shell/js-gdb.gdb

This will install a catch handler that automatically continues of the handler is AsmJSFaultHandler.  I just tried and I get an error that the symbol __GI___sigaction isn't resolved, so I had to change js/src/shell/js-gdb.gdb to call __sigaction instead (filed bug 919564 to fix this), but then it worked.
I'll investigate on this today.
Attached patch fix + test case (obsolete) — Splinter Review
ToInt32 can be called with a Float32 as an input, for instance on 'here is a string'[Math.fround(3)]. This patch is a workaround to convert the Float32 to a Double before it gets converted to an Integer.

That's a temporary solution, the longer term solution is in bug 919838.

Bug 920114 is the same issue as this I think, and has the results of running in a debug build.

fix + test case

Review of attachment 808919 [details] [diff] [review]:

The issue is caused by LIRGenerator::visitToInt32() not having a case for MIRType_Float32, which caused flow into MOZ_ASSUME_UNREACHABLE() instead of returning an error. This fix seems fine, but it's possible that we have missed some more MIR instructions that cannot handle Float32 inputs and that would behave similarly. There are ways to prevent this class of bug in the future, but it seems unlikely to recur, and debug builds should weed them out quickly.

With this patch applied, I still abort, but with an assertion about "consumer->isConsistentFloat32Use(), at js/src/jit/IonAnalysis.cpp:922", as noted in bug 920114 comment 3.

This bug reached Aurora, so I think we need to fix it there too.

I can still reproduce a hang (iloop in LIRGenerator::visitToInt32 where opd->type() == MIRType_Float32) on the demo with a fresh mozilla-inbound tip opt build on Linux64.  If I sit still it doesn't happen, I have to continually jump around.  Is there another place where float32 can vlot into visitToInt32?
Luke: Did you have the patch for bug 915903 applied, too? IIUC that bug could cause similar issues. (and its patch only made it to mozilla-central in the last 12 hours, so maybe you didn't have its patch yet?)  With that, I was able to play Boon for a few minutes at least.
Unfortunately, yes, I specifically checked to see bug 915903 applied.  It seems to take longer to hit the hang than it used to, so I suspect it is a different code path being compiled.
Thankfully, but strangely, the problem is fixed on the most recent Nightly.  So either there is a regression on tip or I was accidentally on a branch; probably the latter, given the time :)  I'll build again to confirm.
Yep, my mistake; works great on tip build.
This problem still happens for me on the very latest nightly. I do need to wait longer, 20-30 seconds or so, but then it hangs with full cpu use, just like before.
Arg, it seems to be non-deterministic, but yes, I was just able to repro it again.  Again, it's visitToToInt32 with opd->type() == MIRType_Float32.

If there we can get this fixed before the next Nightly, let's do that.  Otherwise, I think we need to turn off the float32 optimization for the time being.
Resolution: FIXED → ---
I checked all call sites by hand and it shouldn't happen anymore. Anyways, this workaround is getting more properly implemented in bug 919838, which is about to land, when ARM support gets reviewed.

This will (hopefully) solve all Float32 ToInt32 coercions issues.
Just to be sure I tried and bug 919838 does fix the hang for me (three extended).  Hopefully we can land this before tonight's Nightly.
Nightly contains bug 919838, I tried the demo several times, no hang.
