/* Overflow containers are continuation frames that hold overflow. They
* are created when the frame runs out of computed block-size, but still has
* too much content to fit in the AvailableBSize. The parent creates a
* continuation as usual, but marks it as NS_FRAME_IS_OVERFLOW_CONTAINER
* and adds it to its next-in-flow's overflow container list, either by
* adding it directly or by putting it in its own excess overflow containers
* list (to be drained by the next-in-flow when it calls
* ReflowOverflowContainerChildren). The parent continues reflow as if
* the frame was complete once it ran out of computed block-size, but returns
* a reflow status with either IsIncomplete() or IsOverflowIncomplete() equal
* to true to request a next-in-flow. The parent's next-in-flow is then
* responsible for calling ReflowOverflowContainerChildren to (drain and)
* reflow these overflow continuations. Overflow containers do not affect
* other frames' size or position during reflow (but do affect their
* parent's overflow area).
* Overflow container continuations are different from normal continuations
* in that
* - more than one child of the frame can have its next-in-flow broken
* off and pushed into the frame's next-in-flow
* - new continuations may need to be spliced into the middle of the list
* or deleted continuations slipped out
* e.g. A, B, C are all fixed-size containers on one page, all have
* overflow beyond AvailableBSize, and content is dynamically added
* and removed from B
* As a result, it is not possible to simply prepend the new continuations
* to the old list as with the OverflowProperty mechanism. To avoid
* complicated list splicing, the code assumes only one overflow containers
* list exists for a given frame: either its own OverflowContainersProperty
* or its prev-in-flow's ExcessOverflowContainersProperty, not both.
* The nsOverflowContinuationTracker helper class should be used for tracking
* overflow containers and adding them to the appropriate list.
* See nsBlockFrame::Reflow for a sample implementation.
* For more information, see
* Note that Flex/GridContainerFrame doesn't use nsOverflowContinuationTracker
* so the above doesn't apply. Flex/Grid containers may have items that
* aren't in document order between fragments, due to the 'order' property,
* but they do maintain the invariant that children in the same nsFrameList
* are in document order. This means that when pushing/pulling items or
* merging lists, the result needs to be sorted to restore the order.
* However, given that lists are individually sorted, it's a simple merge
* operation of the two lists to make the result sorted.
* DrainExcessOverflowContainersList takes a merging function to perform that
* operation. (By "document order" here we mean normal frame tree order,
* which is approximately flattened DOM tree order.)

/* The out-of-flow-related code below is for a hacky way of splitting

* Helper class for tracking overflow container continuations during reflow.
* A frame is related to two sets of overflow containers: those that /are/
* its own children, and those that are /continuations/ of its children.
* This tracker walks through those continuations (the frame's NIF's children)
* and their prev-in-flows (a subset of the frame's normal and overflow
* container children) in parallel. It allows the reflower to synchronously
* walk its overflow continuations while it loops through and reflows its
* children. This makes it possible to insert new continuations at the correct
* place in the overflow containers list.
* The reflower is expected to loop through its children in the same order it
* looped through them the last time (if there was a last time).
* For each child, the reflower should either
* - call Skip for the child if was not reflowed in this pass
* - call Insert for the overflow continuation if the child was reflowed
* but has incomplete overflow
* - call Finished for the child if it was reflowed in this pass but
* is either complete or has a normal next-in-flow. This call can
* be skipped if the child did not previously have an overflow
* continuation.
class nsOverflowContinuationTracker {
* Initializes an nsOverflowContinuationTracker to help track overflow
* continuations of aFrame's children. Typically invoked on 'this'.
* aWalkOOFFrames determines whether the walker skips out-of-flow frames
* or skips non-out-of-flow frames.
* Don't set aSkipOverflowContainerChildren to false unless you plan
* to walk your own overflow container children. (Usually they are handled
* by calling ReflowOverflowContainerChildren.) aWalkOOFFrames is ignored
* if aSkipOverflowContainerChildren is false.
nsOverflowContinuationTracker(nsContainerFrame* aFrame, bool aWalkOOFFrames,

* This function adds an overflow continuation to our running list and
* aReflowStatus should preferably be specific to the recently-reflowed
* child and not influenced by any of its siblings' statuses. This
* function sets the NS_FRAME_IS_DIRTY bit on aOverflowCont if it needs
* to be reflowed. (Its need for reflow depends on changes to its
* prev-in-flow, not to its parent--for whom it is invisible, reflow-wise.)
* The caller MUST disconnect the frame from its parent's child list
* if it was not previously an NS_FRAME_IS_OVERFLOW_CONTAINER (because
* StealFrame is much more inefficient than disconnecting in place
* during Reflow, which the caller is able to do but we are not).
* The caller MUST NOT disconnect the frame from its parent's
* child list if it is already an NS_FRAME_IS_OVERFLOW_CONTAINER.

* next-in-flow. This function MUST be called before stealing or
* deleting aChild's next-in-flow.
