    The reason is that we do not create renderers for empty text
    nodes and thus we are hitting the worst O(N^2) case in Node::attach().
    (See FIXME in Node::attach().)
    This patch adds a logic to bail out the loop to avoid the O(N^2) case.
    Specifically, the patch bails out the loop if we encounter a text node
    for which we again decided not to create a renderer. This bail out is
    reasonable because the fact that we again decided not to create a renderer
    for the text node indicates that there will be no affect of the result
    of Text::textRendererIsNeeded() of the rest of the sibling nodes.

    The loop was introduced in r29054. We have to make sure that
    all layout tests that were updated in r29054 pass with this patch.

    * fast/html/details-nested-2-expected.txt: Sometimes anonymous blocks are left without
    being cleaned up (for some reason). With this patch, one anonymouse block is removed at
    the clean-up phase (for some reason). Anyway the new behavior is an expected behavior.
