OOM Linker Issue on Windows

Summary of where we are:

  • Hit Bug 709193 over the weekend.
  • After investigating, determined that we were running out of address space in the linker.
  • Backed out some recent additions (SPDY and Graphite) to get libxul size down a bit and reopen the tree under restricted rules.
  • Removed some code that's not in the critical path from libxul.

Where we're going:

  • Remove enough code from libxul to tide us over (might be here already, might not).
  • Stand up 32 bit compilers on 64 bit operating systems to get another GB of address space.
