When GeckoView tries to restore the same session that it already has, it should do nothing instead of closing the session.
Restoring the same session that's already managed by the GeckoView
instance should be a no-op.
Add some tests for all scenarios that GeckoView encounters when it is
saving/restoring state.

Jim, does this session bug affect Focus? Should we uplift to GV 62 or 63 Beta?
Flags: needinfo?(nchen)
This bug follows bug 1484001, so it should be uplifted to 63 but not GV 62.
