            Bug ID: 195605
           Summary: makeWeakPtr isn't thread-safe
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2

makeWeakPtr isn't thread-safe even though it is called in non main threads.
This can be problem if multiple threads would call makeWeakPtr simultaneously.

WeakPtrFactory::createWeakPtr reads/writes 'm_ref' member variable without locking mutex.

> WeakPtr<T> createWeakPtr(T& ptr) const
> {
>     if (!m_ref)
>         m_ref = WeakReference<T>::create(&ptr);
>     return { makeRef(*m_ref) };
> }

The simple solution is making WeakPtrFactory::m_ref always have a reference to a instance of WeakReference by calling createWeakPtr in WeakPtrFactory ctor.
