/* Weak pointer functionality, implemented as a mixin for use with any class. */

/**
 * SupportsWeakPtr lets you have a pointer to an object 'Foo' without affecting
 * its lifetime. It works by creating a single shared reference counted object
 * (WeakReference) that each WeakPtr will access 'Foo' through. This lets 'Foo'
 * clear the pointer in the WeakReference without having to know about all of
 * the WeakPtrs to it and allows the WeakReference to live beyond the lifetime
 * of 'Foo'.
 *
 * PLEASE NOTE: This weak pointer implementation is not thread-safe.
 *
 * Note that when deriving from SupportsWeakPtr you should add
 * MOZ_DECLARE_WEAKREFERENCE_TYPENAME(ClassName) to the public section of your
 * class, where ClassName is the name of your class.
 *
 * The overhead of WeakPtr is that accesses to 'Foo' becomes an additional
 * dereference, and an additional heap allocated pointer sized object shared
 * between all of the WeakPtrs.
 *
 * Example of usage:
 *
 *   // To have a class C support weak pointers, inherit from
 *   // SupportsWeakPtr<C>.
 *   class C : public SupportsWeakPtr<C>
 *   {
 *   public:
 *     MOZ_DECLARE_WEAKREFERENCE_TYPENAME(C)
 *     int mNum;
 *     void act();
 *   };
 *
 *   C* ptr = new C();
 *
 *   // Get weak pointers to ptr. The first time a weak pointer
 *   // is obtained, a reference counted WeakReference object is created that
 *   // can live beyond the lifetime of 'ptr'. The WeakReference
 *   // object will be notified of 'ptr's destruction.
 *   WeakPtr<C> weak = ptr;
 *   WeakPtr<C> other = ptr;
 *
 *   // Test a weak pointer for validity before using it.
 *   if (weak) {
 *     weak->mNum = 17;
 *     weak->act();
 *   }
 *
 *   // Destroying the underlying object clears weak pointers to it.
 *   delete ptr;
 *
 *   MOZ_ASSERT(!weak, "Deleting |ptr| clears weak pointers to it.");
 *   MOZ_ASSERT(!other, "Deleting |ptr| clears all weak pointers to it.");
 *
 * WeakPtr is typesafe and may be used with any class. It is not required that
 * the class be reference-counted or allocated in any particular way.
 *
 * The API was loosely inspired by Chromium's weak_ptr.h:
 * http://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/src/base/memory/weak_ptr.h

// Weak referencing is not implemeted as thread safe.  When a WeakPtr
// is created or dereferenced on thread A but the real object is just
// being Released() on thread B, there is a possibility of a race
// when the proxy object (detail::WeakReference) is notified about
// the real object destruction just between when thread A is storing
// the object pointer locally and is about to add a reference to it.
//
// Hence, a non-null weak proxy object is considered to have a single
// "owning thread".  It means that each query for a weak reference,
// its dereference, and destruction of the real object must all happen
// on a single thread.  The following macros implement assertions for
// checking these conditions.
//

// the advantage that it works with cooperative thread pools.
