 * |Shmem| is one agent in the IPDL shared memory scheme.  The way it
    works is essentially
 *  (1) C++ code calls, say, |parentActor->AllocShmem(size)|

 *  (2) IPDL-generated code creates a |mozilla::ipc::SharedMemory|
 *  wrapping the bare OS shmem primitives.  The code then adds the new
 *  SharedMemory to the set of shmem segments being managed by IPDL.
 *  (3) IPDL-generated code "shares" the new SharedMemory to the child
 *  process, and then sends a special asynchronous IPC message to the
 *  child notifying it of the creation of the segment.  (What this
 *  means is OS specific.)
 *  (4a) The child receives the special IPC message, and using the
 *  |SharedMemory{Basic}::Handle| it was passed, creates a
 *  |mozilla::ipc::SharedMemory| in the child
 *  process.
 *  (4b) After sending the "shmem-created" IPC message, IPDL-generated
 *  code in the parent returns a |mozilla::ipc::Shmem| back to the C++
 *  caller of |parentActor->AllocShmem()|.  The |Shmem| is a "weak
 *  reference" to the underlying |SharedMemory|, which is managed by
 *  IPDL-generated code.  C++ consumers of |Shmem| can't get at the
 *  underlying |SharedMemory|.
 * If parent code wants to give access rights to the Shmem to the
 * child, it does so by sending its |Shmem| to the child, in an IPDL
 * message.  The parent's |Shmem| then "dies", i.e. becomes
 * inaccessible.  This process could be compared to passing a
 * "shmem-access baton" between parent and child.
