17:29 timotimo darn.
17:29 timotimo with the line based coverage turned on, some spec tests die like this:
17:29 timotimo Spesh: failed to fix up inline 3
17:30 timotimo had to turn the while condition of the "eliminate dead bbs" loops to "cur_bb && cur_bb->linear_next" instead of just "cur_bb->linear_next"

18:14 timotimo ideally, a failed spesh would bring us out of spesh, not out of the whole program
18:14 timotimo and it's kind of weird to get an exception thrown when spesh fails, because ... are you going to react to that? it could happen literally anywhere

23:04 brrt timotimo: that is why we have MVM_oops
23:05 brrt to die with a stack trace but beyond catchinf
23:06 brrt also when spesh dies it might well be because either therw is a bug in its handling or because memory got corrupted
23:07 brrt and in those cases dying quickly is I think preferable to corruption
