[webkit-dev] PSA: Chromium layout test fallbacks AKA down with graphs, long live trees

Sometime this week or next, we plan to change the Chromium layout test
fallback order. We'll be changing it so all chromium ports fallback to
platform/chromium, then to platform/mac. They will never fallback to
platform/win or platform/mac-* as they do today.

The benefits of this change are that it makes the fallback order much
easier to reason about for both human beings and code. I believe it makes
the fallback order for all WebKit ports a tree instead of a complex graph.
This will have minimal impact on the number of expected result files in the
tree since only a few hundred chromium tests currently fallback to
platform/win and/or platform/mac-*.
