A few follow ups have landed in central and a few more are in inbound. My latest try run with all of these patches and the pref enabled looks green to me [1].

Cool.  I will wait for the testing to complete before r+ this for landing.

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)
[Why is this notable]:
  Asynchronous scrolling provides a smoother / less janky scrolling
  experience for users. This bug brings async scrolling to scrolling
  with the keyboard, one of the few remaining scrolling
  methods that don't have it yet.

[Affects Firefox for Android]:
  No.

[Suggested wording]:
  Scrolling with the keyboard now uses asynchronous scrolling,
  similar to other input methods like mousewheel, providing a smoother
  scrolling experience.

Marking as verified since checking that apz.autoscroll.enabled pref is set to true was tested for pre-Beta sign off in Firefox 57.0a1 across platforms.
