Details

(Whiteboard: [MemShrink:P3])

Steps:
- Start an e10s-enabled profile.
- Open about:memory in a new tab.
- Trigger DMD via the signal-based mechanism.

The parent has a huge chunk of unreported memory due to IPC strings:

> Unreported: 226 blocks in stack trace record 1 of 1,833
>  43,008,000 bytes (42,186,524 requested / 821,476 slop)

This seems to go away after not too long, but it would be nice to have a reporter for it anyway, just to make sure it doesn't come back.

It'd be nice if we could somehow record what IPC message is involved for these.  Might be worth a look at the IPDL processor to see if there's a way to make that visible.
