Bug 1513938 - Enforce a Bundle size limit and drop `privateSession` if exceeds it. r=JanH, a=jcristau The `privateSession` key would normally allow persisting the Private Browsing session across OOMs in Activity's Bundle. We need to do that to avoid storing private, sensible data on disk like we do with the normal browsing session. In some cases `privateSession` would contain a lot of data which, along with other possible concurrent transactions could overflow Binder's buffer which has a limited fixed size, currently 1Mb. To avoid this, we will drop `privateSession` from the Bundle if the resulting size is greater than a _speculative_ size of 300KBs which would mean that in the case of an OOM all Private Browsing state would be lost. Bug 1515592 is filed to investigate for a better solution. Differential Revision: https://phabricator.services.mozilla.com/D15067

To have your bug fix / feature added to Mozilla, you should create a patch and
submit it to Bugzilla (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org). Instructions are at:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Creating_a_patch

If you have a question about developing Mozilla, and can't find the solution
on https://developer.mozilla.org, you can try asking your question in a
mozilla.* Usenet group, or on IRC at irc.mozilla.org. [The Mozilla news groups
are accessible on Google Groups, or news.mozilla.org with a NNTP reader.]

You can download nightly development builds from the Mozilla FTP server.
Keep in mind that nightly builds, which are used by Mozilla developers for
testing, may be buggy. Firefox nightlies, for example, can be found at:
