[webvtt] Discard a cue if non-fatal error is returned

libwebvtt currently returns cues that are expected to be passed by the WEBVTT parsing algorithm. In these cases it also calls the error call back to notify the user, in this case Gecko, that the cue isn't malformed in some way.

We need a fix so that the WebVTTLoadListener will discard or keep cues based on the WEBVTT parsing algorithm. This basically just means discarding cues if any kind of error is returned.

It is literally as simple as

 WebVTTLoadListener::OnReportErrorWebVTTCallBack(void* aUserData, uint32_t aLine,
                                                 uint32_t aCol,
                                                 webvtt_error aError)
   WebVTTLoadListener* self = static_cast<WebVTTLoadListener*>(aUserData);
   self->OnReportError(aLine, aCol, aError);
+    return -1;
+  }

Also, why is this not being delegating to the non-static method? The static callback is really just to make that machinery work. The return code should ideally come from the non-static method, not the static callback.
Yeah, that's a good idea. We can switch to doing that as well.

This hasn't been addressed currently, so we should be looking at that in this bug.
Hey, I haven't tested this build locally -- It's possibly that there is a typo in the error code or something, but I don't think so.

I will build over night just to double check this, but I'm 99% sure this is a workable solution.

Of course I'll test this manually with some bad data too.

My tests are currently not working, I'm segfaulting during creation of the track element.

(This is using the html5-track-test-suite file). Something is wrong here, but I am not totally sure what :>
This is a known issue that we're just about to land behind 833382. You have to apply the patch here for it to not crash.
Alright cool, it's probably good then... re-test
Tested with bug833382v2.patch patch, cue with single-digit minute is discarded. And it builds successfully, do me a favour and push to try once the strerror and other DOM fixes land.
unrelated test failures in osx10.6

Drop cues when start/end timestamps are MALFORMED.

Should we have a test for this?
Flags: in-testsuite?

Probably, I can add another mochitest to check it if needed
Makes sense to me to have one. If for some reason this slips by in the future and users start using this it might cause problems.
Well if we're honest we're more likely to make users happy if we DON'T discard their cues, but if they're going to be unhappy they need to be uniformly unhappy ;)
