Bug 20690: Support for DNS prefetch

Attachment 23220: Proposed patch

------- Additional Comments from Antti Koivisto <koivisto at iki.fi>
Looks generally good except for the code changes to
Document::visitedLinkHash(). That code needs better place though so r-.

Could this be tested with HTTP layout test (at least for code coverage)?

+	 If ENABLE(DNS_PREFETCH) is true, notify the FrameLoaderClient 
+	 about hyperlinks and <link rel="dns-prefetch"> tags that are
+	 encountered so that it can speculatively resolve hostnames.

I would prefer not to have a feature define for this. Having it enabled on
platforms that don't support it looks harmless and avoiding configuration
proliferation is a good thing.
+#include "FrameLoaderClient.h"

No need to make this conditional.

This function is for calculating a hash and this kind of code is inappropriate
here. Please find the right place to put this code. Would simply putting it to
HTMLAnchorElement::parseMappedAttribute() work?

+void Document::initDNSPrefetchEnabled()

Maybe just call it initDNSPrefetch()?

+    m_haveExplicitlyDisabledDNSPrefetch = false;
+    m_isDNSPrefetchEnabled = (securityOrigin()->protocol() == "http");

No need for parenthesis here.

+    if (Document* parent = parentDocument())
+	 if (!parent->isDNSPrefetchEnabled())
+	     m_isDNSPrefetchEnabled = false;

Outer if needs curly brackets according to the coding style.

+void Document::setDNSPrefetchControl(const String& dnsPrefetchControl)

This is not really a setter, how about parseDNSPrefetchControlHeader() or

+    if (equalIgnoringCase(dnsPrefetchControl, "on") &&

can be single line

+    m_isDNSPrefetchEnabled = false;

No need for WebCore:: prefix.
