 * Content process manager for the WebAuthn protocol. Created on calls to the
 * WebAuthentication DOM object, this manager handles establishing IPC channels
 * for WebAuthn transactions, as well as keeping track of JS Promise objects
 * representing transactions in flight.
 * The WebAuthn spec ( allows for two different
 * types of transactions: registration and signing. When either of these is
 * requested via the DOM API, the following steps are executed in the
 * WebAuthnManager:
 * - Validation of the request. Return a failed promise to js if request does
 *   not have correct parameters.
 * - If request is valid, open a new IPC channel for running the transaction. If
 *   another transaction is already running in this content process, cancel it.
 *   Return a pending promise to js.
 * - Send transaction information to parent process (by running the Start*
 *   functions of WebAuthnManager). Assuming another transaction is currently in
 *   flight in another content process, parent will handle canceling it.
 * - On return of successful transaction information from parent process, turn
 *   information into DOM object format required by spec, and resolve promise
 *   (by running the Finish* functions of WebAuthnManager). On cancellation
 *   request from parent, reject promise with corresponding error code. Either
 *   outcome will also close the IPC channel.
