 * This class manages a ContentParent that it starts up ahead of any particular
 * need.  You can then call Take() to get this process and use it.  Since we
 * already started it up, it should be ready for use faster than if you'd
 * created the process when you needed it.
 * This class watches the dom.ipc.processPrelaunch.enabled pref.  If it changes
 * from false to true, it preallocates a process.  If it changes from true to
 * false, it kills the preallocated process, if any.
 * We don't expect this pref to flip between true and false in production, but
 * flipping the pref is important for tests.
class PreallocatedProcessManager final {
  typedef mozilla::dom::ContentParent ContentParent;

   * Before first paint we don't want to allocate any processes in the
   * background. To avoid that, the PreallocatedProcessManager won't start up
   * any processes while there is a blocker active.
  static void AddBlocker(ContentParent* aParent);
  static void RemoveBlocker(ContentParent* aParent);

   * Take the preallocated process, if we have one.  If we don't have one, this
   * returns null.
   * If you call Take() twice in a row, the second call is guaranteed to return
   * null.
   * After you Take() the preallocated process, you need to call one of the
   * Allocate* functions (or change the dom.ipc.processPrelaunch pref from
   * false to true) before we'll create a new process.
