When I'm running embedlite setup with APZC Omtc, I'm hitting this code-path:

(gdb) p sCompositor
$1 = (mozilla::layers::CompositorChild *) 0x0

Is this code-path expected only for IPC b2g or something else wrong here?, it seems I did not hit that in Gecko 29.

Summary: Assert in CompositorChild::Get () with Embedlite Setup → Assert crash in CompositorChild::Get () with Embedlite Setup
From an initial glance it looks like that assertion is bogus, and can be removed. Tatiana, can you verify everything works ok if you remove the assertion?

The assertion doesn't fire for B2G because in B2G the CompositorChild is always in the child process, but I'm guessing that in the Embedlite setup everything is in the same process so that's causing an error. However AFAIK CompositorChild is OK to use in the root process too, such as in Fennec where everything is single-process but the compositor lives on a different thread.

This probably started happening recently only because tiling was only turned on recently on B2G, and may have affected code paths being used in Embedlite. However it would be a good idea to bisect this regression to find out exactly what changed and whether or not it had any other unintended consequences.

Yep it works ok with disabled assert.

Also I found that 
invalidRegion.IsEmpty() become true somewhere between: 9592dabe915e372d0b11afcc98fd6ef1c06c8101..a14baa39be4ed6742243c3e7704a2f56132b1d13

this is Git id's
Ok, well that's 4 days worth of changes. Not easy to figure out which change introduced this.

But I talked to some people and the assertion is actually correct. The problem is farther up the stack somewhere. In a single-process environment there shouldn't be a static CompositorChild instance, so the ::Get function shouldn't be called. I don't know the tiling code enough to say where the problem is.

Current tiling code path with UseProgressiveTilePainting = true, and UseLowPrecisionBuffer = true, definitely allow to reach that assertion.
also at we probably should not touch CompositorChild at all if we are not in Gecko_Content process type.
