Patch 1 for bug 27256

Correctly implements Geolocation timeout parameter.

Greg, you mentioned that on iPhone, the call to
GeolocationService::startUpdating may trigger UI to obtain system permissions
for location. Hence it's impossible to apply the timeout parameter in a
meaningful way through the current GeolocationService interface. Currently, the
timeout parameter is not applied at all, so perhaps a reasonable solution is to
ignore timeouts on iPhone by skipping the call to maybeStartTimer? Or we could
skip the call unless we know that system permissions have already been granted?
What do you think?
