Bug 892643 adds a new root type, PersistentRooted. It is okay to have a PersistentRooted on the stack across a GC. The rooting analysis needs to be updated before we can land any uses of PersistentRooted.
I'm guessing that this got resolved somehow, given that PersistentRooted has landed?
I, at least, don't know of any reason this bug needs to be kept open. I think it was filed mostly for Steve's benefit.
Sorry, I really need to get a handle on my needinfos. I'm ignoring some straightforward ones like this because my queue is cluttered up with ancient really hard ones that I should track some other way. annotations.js has this: return name.startsWith('Rooted') || name.startsWith('PersistentRooted'); so this is done. In fact, this bug is a dupe.
