   * Called when the channel got a response that redirects it to a different
   * URI.  The implementation is responsible for calling the redirect observers
   * on the child process and provide the decision result to the callback.
   * @param newURI
   *    the URI we redirect to
   * @param callback
   *    redirect result callback, usage is compatible with how
   *    nsIChannelEventSink defines it

   * Called to new channel when the original channel got Redirect2Verify
   * response from child. Callback will be invoked when the new channel
   * finishes the preparation for Redirect2Verify and can be called immediately.
   * @param callback
   *    redirect ready callback, will be called when redirect verification
   *    procedure can proceed.

   * Called after we are done with redirecting process and we know if to
   * redirect or not.  Forward the redirect result to the child process.  From
   * that moment the nsIParentChannel implementation expects it will be
   * forwarded all notifications from the 'real' channel.
   * Primarilly used by ParentChannelListener::OnRedirectResult and kept as
   * mActiveChannel and mRedirectChannel in that class.
