Cool!  Are you working only on upstream firefox or also on iceweasel in

Just on the upstream...

I won't have to time to do much with this for a few days :-(.  I suspect
a workaround would be to disable JIT.  Also suspect that's not the
preferred way to go :-).  For what it's worth, the missing feature seems
to reside entirely within "ExecutableAllocator.h", which is of a size
that does not intimidate.

JIT -- "Just in time" compiler I presume. That would be a major undertaking to get going if it means implementing an Alpha assembler backend to the compiler.

Do you do your build on the PWS433?  A bit slow, eh?

You said it :-).  firefox-3.6.X builds have typically taken a bit over
six hours to complete.

We should investigate getting access to the porter box.

Could you send through your updated patch for xpcom/glue/nsThreadUtils.[cpp,h] that was required on the 3.6. series?
