Use SameValue instead of === to check for dispatchAction equivalence #14752

@Jessidhia Jessidhia commented Feb 4, 2019

This allows a Reducer/State that happens to hold a -0 or NaN to not bail out of the bail outs / incorrectly bail out. It's the same algorithm that is used to check the deps array in Effect/Memo/etc.

I'm not sure if this is sufficient test coverage, but it does what I expected (and, more importantly, fails if I undo the changes).

This makes sense to me, since we also use semantics for PureComponent, memo, context providers, deps, and so on. Thanks for the PR!

Immutable data structure libraries have their own equality check (like immutable-js).

@acdlite @Jessidhia This really needs a giant warning saying "DO NOT USE ARRAYS AS STATE!!!". This completely breaks them:

const [list, setList] = useState([])
setList((l) => {
  return l

is a complete fail, because sees the same array returned, absolutely nothing happens.
