Changes from last patch:
* Added FrameView::visibleContentScaleFactorDidChange() notification to make sure FrameView::visibleContentsResized() is called during Page::setPageScaleFactor.
* Added guard against unnecessary re-layout

> I don't think this is the right fix for the problem you are seeing.  visibleContentsResized() is called from ScrollView::updateScrollbars() so that the view can react to the changes in visible content size due to overflow controls being created/destroyed.  In your case, you have overlay scrollbars so the overflow controls do not change the amount of content space or visible content space.  Thus there's no reason to react to visibleContentsResized since they haven't actually resized.  I suspect you observe that this patch papers over the bug you have since it's called frequently and happens to trigger in the case where you actually do need additional layout.

FrameView::visibleContentsResized() is currently called from this path as a side effect:

I agree although it works in current shape it is not necessarily correct. Adding another notification for visible content scale change would make the code more robust.
