broken support for mark filter sets in Open
See discussion beginning at https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/harfbuzz/2016-April/005533.html. This was broken in harfbuzz 1.2.2, which we took in bug 1249861, and can disrupt the rendering of fonts with complex mark handling -- e.g. some Arabic-script fonts. The fix is trivial, so we should cherry-pick it and uplift to FF47 so as to avoid shipping a release with the bug present.
We'll take a new harfbuzz version in bug 1251203 shortly, but as this is a regression with a trivial fix, I think we should cherry-pick it and uplift to FF47 rather than waiting for the new version to ride the train.

I tested (manually) that we currently have bad rendering of the Hussaini Nastaleeq font in Nightly, and this patch fixes it. I don't think we can readily add a reftest here (not without considerable effort to create a custom font, etc), but upstream now has a unit test so it shouldn't get regressed again.
