Add a watchdog to monitor long running tasks in Task

This helps debug hangs like bug 1317234.
Did you want to push this to completion, or are we just letting something like the background hang reporting take care of this nowadays?

http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/ed1d5223adcdc07e9a2589ee20f4e5ee91b4df10/toolkit/components/backgroundhangmonitor/BackgroundHangMonitor.h#25-26 It looks like BHM doesn't monitor every thread but only the main and 'background' threads as I had to devise our own watchdog to monitor media threads. I forgot the reason why I didn't complete the task (maybe due to Try failures?). And now I don't have time to complete it either. So I just leave it there in case someone finds it interesting.
