    Page content can change rapidly during page loading triggering excessive layer flushes and repainting. We should avoid this unnecessary work.
            
    This patch reduces layer flushes (and painting) during loading by 50-70% on many popular pages.
    
    * loader/FrameLoader.cpp:
    (WebCore::FrameLoader::loadProgressingStatusChanged):        
    * loader/FrameLoader.h:
    * loader/ProgressTracker.cpp:
    (WebCore::ProgressTracker::ProgressTracker):
    (WebCore::ProgressTracker::reset):
    (WebCore::ProgressTracker::progressStarted):
    (WebCore::ProgressTracker::finalProgressComplete):
    (WebCore::ProgressTracker::isLoadProgressing):
    (WebCore::ProgressTracker::progressHeartbeatTimerFired):
    * loader/ProgressTracker.h:
            
        Track if the document load is progressing. This is done with a heartbeat timer that checks every 100ms if we have received more than 1k of data.
        If four heartbeats pass without progress then we consider the load stalled.
    
    * page/FrameView.cpp:
    (WebCore::FrameView::resetDeferredRepaintDelay):
            
        Disable throttling temporary on user interaction so the page stays as responsive as possible even during loading.
    
    (WebCore::FrameView::updateLayerFlushThrottling):
            
        Enable throttling when the load is progressing, disable otherwise.
    
    * page/FrameView.h:
    * platform/graphics/GraphicsLayer.h:

    * platform/graphics/ca/GraphicsLayerCA.cpp:
    (WebCore::GraphicsLayerCA::platformCALayerDidCreateTiles):
    (WebCore::GraphicsLayerCA::canThrottleLayerFlush):
            
        Don't throttle if new tiles have been added by the tile controller. They may have stale content and need to be flushed immediately.
    
    (WebCore::GraphicsLayerCA::noteLayerPropertyChanged):
            
        Set the new TilesAdded change flag.

    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::notifyFlushRequired):
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::scheduleLayerFlushNow):
            
        Factor the actual flush scheduling to private function.
    
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::scheduleLayerFlush):
            
        Mark the compositor for flush and return without flushing if the flushes are currently being throttled.
    
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::flushPendingLayerChanges):
            
        After a flush, start the throtting timer (currently 0.5s) coalescing the subsequent flushes.
    
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::didChangeVisibleRect):
            
        Do immediately flush if needed.
    
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::setLayerFlushThrottlingEnabled):
            
        Flush immediately if disabled.
    
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::disableLayerFlushThrottlingTemporarilyForInteraction):
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::isThrottlingLayerFlushes):
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::startLayerFlushTimerIfNeeded):
    (WebCore::RenderLayerCompositor::layerFlushTimerFired):
            
        Flush when the timer fires timer.
