Bug 61344: --webkit-visual-word does not work in multi-line

Attachment 107738: patch w/ layout test

------- Additional Comments from Xiaomei Ji <xji at chromium.org>
These functions are only used in moving cursor by word, more specifically, the
2 newly added functions only triggered when finding word break on next or
previous line.
Considering the speed of key press in  real use case, where user press ctrl
(alt) + arrow to move cursor by word,  and considering the functions are only
triggered when searching words across line boundary ("\n" in text field, not
wrapped lines), I do not think performance is a concern here. Traversing DOM
node is a much cleaner/safer solution.
