mozjs is fixed with your patch. I backported it to all of the ancient
versions of mozjs, so we're probably good there. Though every distro
will have to redo that work in their own trees, because older versions
of mozjs are no longer maintained upstream. If you want to be a hero,
you can try to port polkitd and gnome to use more recent versions of
mozjs ;). Or maybe they can already and we just messed up packaging.

The issue I mentioned with "js 1.8.5" is this gem:

I don't know the exact history, but I think it predates mozjs. With a
bit of sledge hammering your heap allocation patch applies there too,
but we still get the rodata references.
