[GTK][CMake] Unable to do make install

This landed!

Race condition when closing pages with network process enabled

I've finally found the problem here and it was not a race condition in
the end. The problem was that the web process was not notified when the
UI process closed the connection because other processes shared the file
descriptor. I've renamed the bug and wrote a patch to properly set the
CLOEXEC flag in our socketpair sockets. I've just landed the patch.

[GTK] DOM Bindings API break

Phil and I fixed all the issues, but there are new breaks now, they
should be easy to fix.

REGRESSION(r165841): Messages sent before the child process is launched
are never sent

This finally landed \o/


Fix the remaining regression caused by the jsCStack branch merge on
Linux platforms

There's only one failure now, and Zan wrote a patch to fix it, so
hopefully this will be fixed soon too.

[GTK][CMake] Add a 'distcheck' target to the build

We need to make sure we can create a reasonable tarball with cmake. We
also need to make sure it can be built with jhbuild.


REGRESSION(r166975): [GTK] Page overlays are not drawn anymore after

I don't know what page overlays are for, so I'm sure how this regression
affects us.

We should also make sure JSC is parallel installable with previous
versions of Webkit1 and fix the remaining DOM bindings API breaks. So,
we are closer to be able to make a first unstable release this cycle,
but still not there :-(

As usual, any help would be really appreciated, and if I've missed
anything feel free to complete the list.
