 * We want to share layer trees across thread contexts and address
 * spaces for several reasons; chief among them
 *  - a parent process can paint a child process's layer tree while
 *    the child process is blocked, say on content script.  This is
 *    important on mobile devices where UI responsiveness is key.
 *  - a dedicated "compositor" process can asynchronously (wrt the
 *    browser process) composite and animate layer trees, allowing a
 *    form of pipeline parallelism between compositor/browser/content
 *  - a dedicated "compositor" process can take all responsibility for
 *    accessing the GPU, which is desirable on systems with
 *    buggy/leaky drivers because the compositor process can die while
 *    browser and content live on (and failover mechanisms can be
 *    installed to quickly bring up a replacement compositor)
 * The Layers model has a crisply defined API, which makes it easy to
 * safely "share" layer trees.  The ShadowLayers API extends Layers to
 * allow a remote, parent process to access a child process's layer
 * tree.
 * ShadowLayerForwarder publishes a child context's layer tree to a
 * parent context.  This comprises recording layer-tree modifications
 * into atomic transactions and pushing them over IPC.
 * LayerManagerComposite grafts layer subtrees published by child-context
 * ShadowLayerForwarder(s) into a parent-context layer tree.
 * (Advanced note: because our process tree may have a height >2, a
 * non-leaf subprocess may both receive updates from child processes
 * and publish them to parent processes.  Put another way,
 * LayerManagers may be both LayerManagerComposites and
 * ShadowLayerForwarders.)
 * There are only shadow types for layers that have different shadow
 * vs. not-shadow behavior.  ColorLayers and ContainerLayers behave
 * the same way in both regimes (so far).
 * The mecanism to shadow the layer tree on the compositor through IPC works as
 * follows:
 * The layer tree is managed on the content thread, and shadowed in the compositor
 * thread. The shadow layer tree is only kept in sync with whatever happens in
 * the content thread. To do this we use IPDL protocols. IPDL is a domain
 * specific language that describes how two processes or thread should
 * communicate. C++ code is generated from .ipdl files to implement the message
 * passing, synchronization and serialization logic. To use the generated code
 * we implement classes that inherit the generated IPDL actor. the ipdl actors
 * of a protocol PX are PXChild or PXParent (the generated class), and we
 * conventionally implement XChild and XParent. The Parent side of the protocol
 * is the one that lives on the compositor thread. Think of IPDL actors as
 * endpoints of communication. they are useful to send messages and also to
 * dispatch the message to the right actor on the other side. One nice property
 * of an IPDL actor is that when an actor, say PXChild is sent in a message, the
 * PXParent comes out in the other side. we use this property a lot to dispatch
 * messages to the right layers and compositable, each of which have their own
 * ipdl actor on both side.
 * Most of the synchronization logic happens in layer transactions and
 * compositable transactions.
 * A transaction is a set of changes to the layers and/or the compositables
 * that are sent and applied together to the compositor thread to keep the
 * LayerComposite in a coherent state.
 * Layer transactions maintain the shape of the shadow layer tree, and
 * synchronize the texture data held by compositables. Layer transactions
 * are always between the content thread and the compositor thread.
 * Compositable transactions are subset of a layer transaction with which only
 * compositables and textures can be manipulated, and does not always originate
 * from the content thread. (See CompositableForwarder.h and ImageBridgeChild.h)

   * The following Alloc/Open/Destroy interfaces abstract over the
   * details of working with surfaces that are shared across
   * processes.  They provide the glue between C++ Layers and the
   * LayerComposite IPC system.
   * The basic lifecycle is
   *  - a Layer needs a buffer.  Its ShadowableLayer subclass calls
   *    AllocBuffer(), then calls one of the Created*Buffer() methods
   *    above to transfer the (temporary) front buffer to its
   *    LayerComposite in the other process.  The Layer needs a
   *    gfxASurface to paint, so the ShadowableLayer uses
   *    OpenDescriptor(backBuffer) to get that surface, and hands it
   *    out to the Layer.
   * - a Layer has painted new pixels.  Its ShadowableLayer calls one
   *   of the Painted*Buffer() methods above with the back buffer
   *   descriptor.  This notification is forwarded to the LayerComposite,
   *   which uses OpenDescriptor() to access the newly-painted pixels.
   *   The LayerComposite then updates its front buffer in a Layer- and
   *   platform-dependent way, and sends a surface descriptor back to
   *   the ShadowableLayer that becomes its new back back buffer.
   * - a Layer wants to destroy its buffers.  Its ShadowableLayer
   *   calls Destroyed*Buffer(), which gives up control of the back
   *   buffer descriptor.  The actual back buffer surface is then
   *   destroyed using DestroySharedSurface() just before notifying
   *   the parent process.  When the parent process is notified, the
   *   LayerComposite also calls DestroySharedSurface() on its front
   *   buffer, and the double-buffer pair is gone.
