Bug 1361618 - Remove unnecessary calls to FlushPendingLinkUpdates. r=smaug This removes the two calls to `FlushPendingLinkUpdates` in nsCSSFrameConstructor and GeckoRestyleManager, which appear to have no effect. Looking through what the pending link code is attempting to do: * When a new anchor is bound in `BindToTree` we do: 1. Link::ResetLinkState(false, Link::ElementHasHref()); * Set link's mLinkState to default (either unvisited or not link) * Set element's link mState bits to default (either unvisited or not link) 2. doc->RegisterPendingLinkUpdate(this); * Schedules idle dispatch to run `FlushPendingLinkUpdates` within 1 sec * In `FlushPendingLinkUpdates`: * For each pending link, call element->UpdateLinkState(link->LinkState()); 1. Register link for async history update to get potential future visited state 2. mLinkState is still unvisited / not link until we hear from history, so element state is unchanged Thus, there seems to be no need to call `FlushPendingLinkUpdates` outside of `BindToTree`, since visited state is always applied async anyway (so it doesn't work as an optimization to avoid restyling if visited, since that will trigger later).
