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.
