Once filter navigation is finished in bug 942295, we should allow views within a panel specify an initial filter. This allows multiple views and/or panels to pull from the same dataset.

{ type: Home.panels.View.LIST,
  dataset: "somedatasetid",
  initialFilter: "somefilter" }

Attached patch patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
I added an optional 'rootFilter' key to the view config that can be used to specify the top level filter that should be used for the retrieving the initial data from the dataset.

Looks great but I think using 'rootFilter' kinda implies hierarchy navigation which is not necessarily true i.e. the add-on dev might just want to reuse same dataset across different views in the layout by just varying the initial filter. So, let's use something simpler. Rename rootFilter to simply 'filter'. This means:

In the json: rootFilter -> filter
In HomeConfig API: ViewConfig.getRootFilter() -> ViewConfig.getFilter()

And so forth. I originally considered going with 'initialFilter' instead but I think it's implied that a filter defined in ViewConfig is the initial filter anyway. No need to be too explicit about it.

nit: maybe do:

final FilterDetail filter = new FilterDetail(mChildConfig.getFilter(), null);
final DatasetRequest request = new DatasetRequest(mChildConfig.getDatasetId(), filter);

Note to release managers: I'm requesting uplift for a series of Firefox Hub bugs. The main fixes we need are in bugs at the end of the series, but trying to rebase those patches proved difficult and risky, so I think we should just uplift the dependecies.

Note to sheriffs: I have a local patch series that I can land on aurora when these bugs all get approval.

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): dependency for initial Firefox Hub release (promoted feed add-ons in fx30)
User impact if declined: panels won't update when data changes
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): baked on m-c
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): only affects dynamic panels, need an add-on to trigger this
String or IDL/UUID changes made by this patch: none
