What is the expected behavior?
You should see a linear-gradient background with blue/purple colors. The SVG circles should be rendered as such.

Instead, you see a white background. The circles are distorted.

Attached are screenshots of the views in Chrome and Firefox.

Does it occur on multiple sites: Yes

Is it a problem with a plugin? No 

Did this work before? Yes The rendering of the SVG circles still worked a few weeks ago (exact version unknown). Not sure about the linear-gradient though.

Also fails on a Nexus 5x 55.0.2883.36. Does not fail on desktop linux or in device emulation.

Bisect requested.
Still waiting on a bisect.

Any insight from the Skia team as to why this might be happening?
We have been making some changes in the gradient code, let's start with Florin
No idea what might be causing these artifacts.

I can repro as far back as 345568 (M47 days), and other/older binaries are no longer supported on new Android devices.

So not a (recent) regression AFAICT.

Assigning to Skia, as the problem almost certainly is there.
