As suggested in Bug 30555, WebCore::externalRepresentation should take Frame* instead of RenderObject*.

Patch v1

This is a good change. But you're missing an opportunity to fix a major bug in externalRepresentation.

The layout needs to be moved to the top of the function, before the SVG call to writeRenderResources.

And the RenderObject should be fetched only after the call to layout.

I'll say r=me assuming that you'll do those fixes in a subsequent patch, because those are really the motivation for making this change.

All reviewed patches have been landed.  Closing bug.

Yeah, I'll fix it, but I wanted to avoid changing both WebCore interface and WebCore implementation in one patch. An interface change requires change of multiple platform code, which has the risk of build breakage. So, I want to keep the risk as possible. I'll post another patch after I confirm this change doesn't break anything in build bots. I think I should have described this plan, sorry.

Thanks for the review.
