Bug 1550671: split `SelectionCopyHelper` to more informative functions r=hsivonen The name `SelectionCopyHelper` didn't state what the function does. Now, instead of `SelectionCopyHelper`, the following two call sequences exist: 1) `EncodeDocumentWithContext`, `PutToClipboard`. 2) `EncodeDocumentWithContextAndCreateTransferable`, calling `EncodeDocumentWithContext` and `CreateTransferable`. Apart from additional nullptr checks, the semantics didn't change. Differential Revision:

   * Fires a cut, copy or paste event, on the given presshell, depending
   * on the value of aEventMessage, which should be either eCut, eCopy or
   * ePaste, and perform the default copy action if the event was not
   * cancelled.
   * If aSelection is specified, then this selection is used as the target
   * of the operation. Otherwise, GetSelectionForCopy is used to retrieve
   * the current selection.
   * This will fire a cut, copy or paste event at the node at the start
   * point of the selection. If a cut or copy event is not cancelled, the
   * selection is copied to the clipboard and true is returned. Paste events
   * have no default behaviour but true will be returned. It is expected
   * that the caller will execute any needed default paste behaviour. Also,
   * note that this method only copies text to the clipboard, the caller is
   * responsible for removing the content during a cut operation if true is
   * returned.
   * aClipboardType specifies which clipboard to use, from nsIClipboard.
   * If aActionTaken is non-NULL, it will be set to true if an action was
   * taken, whether it be the default action or the default being prevented.
   * If the event is cancelled or an error occurs, false will be returned.
