Bug 795657: Integrate native viewport configuration better into async pan-zoom code. r=jwir3,roc a=blocking-basecamp This is a rollup of the following patches - Change the interpretation of FrameMetrics.mZoom to a "resolution-indepedent zoom", instead of a resolution-depedent scale factor. r=roc - Remove mention of "meta" from TabChild. r=roc - Remove some useless logging. r=roc - Tag FrameMetrics with its composition bounds at paint time. r=roc - Add a helper to calculate the render resolution for a FrameMetrics. r=roc - Add a helper to compute the approximate CSS dimensions a FrameMetrics will cover during composition. r=roc - BrowserElementScrolling doesn't actually care about zoom or resolution. r=roc - Accept the viewport that content has calculated, when it's received the latest widget geometry update. r=roc - Mechanically separate uses of zoom/resolution based on new definitions. r=roc - Convert GetViewportInfo()'s resolution-dependent scale into resolution-indepedent zoom. r=roc - Reinterpret defaultZoom == 0.0 as "intrinsic scale". r=jwir3,roc

 * View interface
 * Views are NOT reference counted. Use the Destroy() member function to
 * destroy a view.
 * The lifetime of the view hierarchy is bounded by the lifetime of the
 * view manager that owns the views.
 * Most of the methods here are read-only. To set the corresponding properties
 * of a view, go through nsIViewManager.

class nsIView

   * Find the view for the given widget, if there is one.
   * @return the view the widget belongs to, or null if the widget doesn't
   * belong to any view.
  static nsIView* GetViewFor(nsIWidget* aWidget);

   * Get the view manager which "owns" the view.
   * This method might require some expensive traversal work in the future. If you can get the
   * view manager from somewhere else, do that instead.
   * @result the view manager
  nsIViewManager* GetViewManager() const
  { return reinterpret_cast<nsIViewManager*>(mViewManager); }

   * Destroy the view.
   * The view destroys its child views, and destroys and releases its
   * widget (if it has one).
   * Also informs the view manager that the view is destroyed by calling
   * SetRootView(NULL) if the view is the root view and calling RemoveChild()
   * otherwise.
  void Destroy();

   * Called to get the position of a view.
   * The specified coordinates are relative to the parent view's origin, but
   * are in appunits of this.
   * This is the (0, 0) origin of the coordinate space established by this view.
   * @param x out parameter for x position
   * @param y out parameter for y position
  nsPoint GetPosition() const {
    // Call ExternalIsRoot here so that we can get to it from other
    // components
    NS_ASSERTION(!ExternalIsRoot() || (mPosX == 0 && mPosY == 0),
                 "root views should always have explicit position of (0,0)");
    return nsPoint(mPosX, mPosY);

   * Set the position of a view. This does not cause any invalidation. It
   * does reposition any widgets in this view or its descendants.
  virtual void SetPosition(nscoord aX, nscoord aY) = 0;
   * Called to get the dimensions and position of the view's bounds.
   * The view's bounds (x,y) are relative to the origin of the parent view, but
   * are in appunits of this.
   * The view's bounds (x,y) might not be the same as the view's position,
   * if the view has content above or to the left of its origin.
   * @param aBounds out parameter for bounds
  nsRect GetBounds() const { return mDimBounds; }

   * The bounds of this view relative to this view. So this is the same as
   * GetBounds except this is relative to this view instead of the parent view.
  nsRect GetDimensions() const {
    nsRect r = mDimBounds; r.MoveBy(-mPosX, -mPosY); return r;

   * Get the offset between the coordinate systems of |this| and aOther.
   * Adding the return value to a point in the coordinate system of |this|
   * will transform the point to the coordinate system of aOther.
   * The offset is expressed in appunits of |this|. So if you are getting the
   * offset between views in different documents that might have different
   * appunits per devpixel ratios you need to be careful how you use the
   * result.
   * If aOther is null, this will return the offset of |this| from the
   * root of the viewmanager tree.
   * This function is fastest when aOther is an ancestor of |this|.
   * NOTE: this actually returns the offset from aOther to |this|, but
   * that offset is added to transform _coordinates_ from |this| to aOther.
  nsPoint GetOffsetTo(const nsIView* aOther) const;

   * Get the offset between the origin of |this| and the origin of aWidget.
   * Adding the return value to a point in the coordinate system of |this|
   * will transform the point to the coordinate system of aWidget.
   * The offset is expressed in appunits of |this|.
  nsPoint GetOffsetToWidget(nsIWidget* aWidget) const;

   * Takes a point aPt that is in the coordinate system of |this|'s parent view
   * and converts it to be in the coordinate system of |this| taking into
   * account the offset and any app unit per dev pixel ratio differences.
  nsPoint ConvertFromParentCoords(nsPoint aPt) const;

   * Called to query the visibility state of a view.
   * @result current visibility state
  nsViewVisibility GetVisibility() const { return mVis; }

   * Get whether the view "floats" above all other views,
   * which tells the compositor not to consider higher views in
   * the view hierarchy that would geometrically intersect with
   * this view. This is a hack, but it fixes some problems with
   * views that need to be drawn in front of all other views.
   * @result true if the view floats, false otherwise.
  bool GetFloating() const { return (mVFlags & NS_VIEW_FLAG_FLOATING) != 0; }

   * Called to query the parent of the view.
   * @result view's parent
  nsIView* GetParent() const { return reinterpret_cast<nsIView*>(mParent); }

   * The view's first child is the child which is earliest in document order.
   * @result first child
  nsIView* GetFirstChild() const { return reinterpret_cast<nsIView*>(mFirstChild); }

   * Called to query the next sibling of the view.
   * @result view's next sibling
  nsIView* GetNextSibling() const { return reinterpret_cast<nsIView*>(mNextSibling); }
  void SetNextSibling(nsIView *aSibling) {
    mNextSibling = reinterpret_cast<nsView*>(aSibling);

   * Set the view's frame.
  void SetFrame(nsIFrame* aRootFrame) { mFrame = aRootFrame; }

   * Retrieve the view's frame.
  nsIFrame* GetFrame() const { return mFrame; }

   * Get the nearest widget in this view or a parent of this view and
   * the offset from the widget's origin to this view's origin
   * @param aOffset - if non-null the offset from this view's origin to the
   * widget's origin (usually positive) expressed in appunits of this will be
   * returned in aOffset.
   * @return the widget closest to this view; can be null because some view trees
   * don't have widgets at all (e.g., printing), but if any view in the view tree
   * has a widget, then it's safe to assume this will not return null
   * XXX Remove this 'virtual' when gfx+widget are merged into gklayout;
   * Mac widget depends on this method, which is BOGUS!
  virtual nsIWidget* GetNearestWidget(nsPoint* aOffset) const;

   * Create a widget to associate with this view.  This variant of
   * CreateWidget*() will look around in the view hierarchy for an
   * appropriate parent widget for the view.
   * @param aWidgetInitData data used to initialize this view's widget before
   *        its create is called.

   * Create a popup widget for this view.  Pass |aParentWidget| to
   * explicitly set the popup's parent.  If it's not passed, the view
   * hierarchy will be searched for an appropriate parent widget.  The

   * view gets destroyed.
  void DestroyWidget();

   * Attach/detach a top level widget from this view. When attached, the view
   * updates the widget's device context and allows the view to begin receiving
   * gecko events. The underlying base window associated with the widget will
   * continues to receive events it expects.

   * @param aWidget out parameter for widget that this view contains,
