// PerformanceCounter is a class that can be used to keep track of
// runnable execution times and dispatch counts.
//
// - runnable execution time: time spent in a runnable when called
//   in nsThread::ProcessNextEvent (not counting recursive calls)
// - dispatch counts: number of times a tracked runnable is dispatched
//   in nsThread. Useful to measure the activity of a tab or worker.
//
// The PerformanceCounter class is currently instantiated in DocGroup
// and WorkerPrivate in order to count how many scheduler dispatches
// are done through them, and how long the execution lasts.
//
// The execution time is calculated by the nsThread class (and its
// inherited WorkerThread class) in its ProcessNextEvent method.
//
// For each processed runnable, nsThread will reach out the
// PerformanceCounter attached to the runnable via its DocGroup
// or WorkerPrivate and call IncrementExecutionDuration()
//
// Notice that the execution duration counting takes into account
// recursivity. If an event triggers a recursive call to
// nsThread::ProcessNextEVent, the counter will discard the time
// spent in sub events.
