// ThreadChecker is a helper class used to help verify that some methods of a
// class are called from the same thread (for thread-affinity).
// Use the macros below instead of the ThreadChecker directly so that the unused
// member doesn't result in an extra byte (four when padded) per instance in
// production.
// Usage of this class should be *rare* as most classes require thread-safety
// but not thread-affinity. Prefer base::SequenceChecker to verify thread-safe
// access.
// Thread-affinity checks should only be required in classes that use thread-
// local-storage or a third-party API that does.
// Prefer to encode the minimum requirements of each class instead of the
// environment it happens to run in today. e.g. if a class requires thread-
// safety but not thread-affinity, use a SequenceChecker even if it happens to
// run on a SingleThreadTaskRunner today. That makes it easier to understand
// what would need to change to turn that SingleThreadTaskRunner into a
// SequencedTaskRunner for ease of scheduling as well as minimizes side-effects
// if that change is made.
// Usage:
// class MyClass {
// public:
// MyClass() {
// // It's sometimes useful to detach on construction for objects that are
// // constructed in one place and forever after used from another
// // thread.
// DETACH_FROM_THREAD(my_thread_checker_);
// }
// ~MyClass() {
// // ThreadChecker doesn't automatically check it's destroyed on origin
// // thread for the same reason it's sometimes detached in the
// // constructor. It's okay to destroy off thread if the owner otherwise
// // knows usage on the associated thread is done. If you're not
// // detaching in the constructor, you probably want to explicitly check
// // in the destructor.
// DCHECK_CALLED_ON_VALID_THREAD(my_thread_checker_);
// }

// DCHECK_CALLED_ON_VALID_THREAD(my_thread_checker_);
// ... (do stuff) ...
