Refactor shadow layers
Refactor the layers system so that all shadow layers backends use a single layer manager and a backend-specific compositor. Start by refactoring the OGL layers backend into a CompositorOGL for OMTC and LayerManagerOGL for on-MTC.
Work is happening on the graphics branch.
Currently TODO before a first, imperfect landing: Tiled Thebes layers, fix canvas layers, a few minor OGL tidy ups. Once we've landed that, need to change (simplify) the API for Texture clients, work on a better API for texture client factories, implement a PTexture IPDL protocol for direct communication between texture clients and hosts (remove Update() from TextureHost).
There are many box-shadow (and text-shadow) bugs that may be touched by the refactoring. Should I list them here (I cannot add them as depending or dependant, though)?

'Shadow' in the context of this bug means the copy of the layer tree present on the compositor thread, not shadows as in box-shadow.
Oh, sorry, that's indeed something very different! Now all this stuff makes a lot more sense to me …
