dbc8f6df5c759a53808c6562c550f6e1d695ef50 solves the conflict, but maybe not in the intended way.

For example, for a block-level column flex container, the cross size is the inline size and https://drafts.csswg.org/css2/visudet.html#blockwidth never uses a content-based size. `width: auto` is resolved as the containing block width minus margins etc.

Instead I think the intended behavior is that an `auto` or otherwise indefinite size is resolved as the sum of flex lines’ cross sizes, then the rest of the rules of the formatting context in which the flex container participates apply. Similar to tables in CSS 2.
