>> FYI, I’m looking into making OSR exits work in a more memory efficient way using the JIT probe mechanism. Once we make this transition, the DFG and FTL will not work for any CPU targets that don’t support the JIT probe mechanism. The API to the JIT probe will probably change as well as this work progresses. I’ll take care of updating all the probe implementations for ARM and x86 variants.

See everything guarded by ENABLE(MASM_PROBE) in MacroAssemblerX86Common.cpp. You’ll need to have the equivalent for MIPS. Eventually, we may need some additional changes as well, but that depends on the solution currently being investigated.
