bug 1218576 - Support remote accumulation via JS histograms. r=gfritzsche The JS histograms, too, need to dispatch their accumulations from child to parent. JSHistograms_Add now only supports histograms that are in gHistogramsMap or that were created in the parent process. After bug 1288745, maybe we'll be able to change this to be less convoluted.

/**
 * An asynchronous SQL statement.  This differs from mozIStorageStatement by
 * only being usable for asynchronous execution.  (mozIStorageStatement can
 * be used for both synchronous and asynchronous purposes.)  This specialization
 * for asynchronous operation allows us to avoid needing to acquire
 * synchronization primitives also used by the asynchronous execution thread.
 * In contrast, mozIStorageStatement may need to acquire the primitives and
 * consequently can cause the main thread to lock for extended intervals while
 * the asynchronous thread performs some long-running operation.

   * 'params' provides a magic JS helper that lets you assign parameters by
   * name.  Unlike the helper on mozIStorageStatement, you cannot enumerate
   * in order to find out what parameters are legal.
   *
   * This does not work for BLOBs.  You must use an explicit binding API for
   * that.
   *
   * example:
   *  stmt.params.foo = 1;
   *  stmt.params["bar"] = 2;
   *  let argName = "baz";
   *  stmt.params[argName] = 3;
