Bug 1333931 - Handle nullptr TextTrack objects in sorting. r=kinetik Check for nullptr arguments passed to CompareTextTracks. Based on Ben Kelly's analysis this can happen if the cycle collector has cleared a TextTrack pointer while comparision is still happening, perhaps in a queued event task. This change makes nullptr sort to the end, and adds a MOZ_DIAGNOSTIC_ASSERT for trying to get the position of a nullptr track should someone add another call at a later date.

/**
 * An asynchronous SQL statement.  This differs from mozIStorageStatement by
 * only being usable for asynchronous execution.  (mozIStorageStatement can
 * be used for both synchronous and asynchronous purposes.)  This specialization
 * for asynchronous operation allows us to avoid needing to acquire
 * synchronization primitives also used by the asynchronous execution thread.
 * In contrast, mozIStorageStatement may need to acquire the primitives and
 * consequently can cause the main thread to lock for extended intervals while
 * the asynchronous thread performs some long-running operation.

   * 'params' provides a magic JS helper that lets you assign parameters by

   * This does not work for BLOBs.  You must use an explicit binding API for

   *  let argName = "baz";
