Bug 704320 - content/dom changes for meta referrer support. (r=jst) This enables referrer policies for: - EventSource (content/base/src/EventSource) - XMLHttpRequest (content/base/src/nsXMLHttpRequest) - HTML media elements (content/html/content/src/HTMLMediaElement) - window.open (embedding/components/windowwatcher) - window.location (dom/base/nsLocation)

/* VolatileBuffer
 *
 * This class represents a piece of memory that can potentially be reclaimed
 * by the OS when not in use. As long as there are one or more
 * VolatileBufferPtrs holding on to a VolatileBuffer, the memory will remain
 * available. However, when there are no VolatileBufferPtrs holding a
 * VolatileBuffer, the OS can purge the pages if it wants to. The OS can make
 * better decisions about what pages to purge than we can.
 *
 * VolatileBuffers may not always be volatile - if the allocation is too small,
 * or if the OS doesn't support the feature, or if the OS doesn't want to,
 * the buffer will be allocated on heap.
 *
 * VolatileBuffer allocations are fallible. They are intended for uses where
 * one may allocate large buffers for caching data. Init() must be called
 * exactly once.
 *
 * After getting a reference to VolatileBuffer using VolatileBufferPtr,
 * WasPurged() can be used to check if the OS purged any pages in the buffer.
 * The OS cannot purge a buffer immediately after a VolatileBuffer is
 * initialized. At least one VolatileBufferPtr must be created before the
 * buffer can be purged, so the first use of VolatileBufferPtr does not need
 * to check WasPurged().
 *
 * When a buffer is purged, some or all of the buffer is zeroed out. This
 * API cannot tell which parts of the buffer were lost.
 *
 * VolatileBuffer is not thread safe. Do not use VolatileBufferPtrs on
 * different threads.
