pageshow event should be dispatched asynchronously

see step #4.5 of the history traversal algorithm (section 6.5.9):
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/history.html#traverse-the-history

this is (probably) a recent change to the spec

Would there be an observable difference?

You could probably observe this on an iframe in the same origin.
