namespace mozilla {
namespace layers {

class ThebesLayer;

 * This class encapsulates the buffer used to retain ThebesLayer contents,
 * i.e., the contents of the layer's GetVisibleRegion().
 * This is a cairo/Thebes surface, but with a literal twist. Scrolling
 * causes the layer's visible region to move. We want to keep
 * reusing the same surface if the region size hasn't changed, but we don't
 * want to keep moving the contents of the surface around in memory. So
 * we use a trick.
 * Consider just the vertical case, and suppose the buffer is H pixels
 * high and we're scrolling down by N pixels. Instead of copying the
 * buffer contents up by N pixels, we leave the buffer contents in place,
 * and paint content rows H to H+N-1 into rows 0 to N-1 of the buffer.
 * Then we can refresh the screen by painting rows N to H-1 of the buffer
 * at row 0 on the screen, and then painting rows 0 to N-1 of the buffer
 * at row H-N on the screen.
 * mBufferRotation.y would be N in this example.
class ThebesLayerBuffer {
  typedef gfxASurface::gfxContentType ContentType;

   * Controls the size of the backing buffer of this.
   * - SizedToVisibleBounds: the backing buffer is exactly the same
   *   size as the bounds of ThebesLayer's visible region
   * - ContainsVisibleBounds: the backing buffer is large enough to
   *   fit visible bounds.  May be larger.

   * mRegionToInvalidate is set when the buffer has changed from
   * opaque to transparent or vice versa, since the details of rendering can
   * depend on the buffer type.  mDidSelfCopy is true if we kept our buffer
   * but used MovePixels() to shift its content.

   * to resample across the rotation boundary) and will ensure that we

   * invalid pixels outside the visible region, if the visible region doesn't
