Description Chris Dumez 2021-04-13 15:14:34 PDT
Stop requiring a RemoteRenderingBackend for visibility propagation views. This is inconvenient because doing media playback in the GPUProcess does not require a RemoteRenderingBackend.
This also makes things difficult to exit the GPUProcess on memory pressure when unused.

Feels slightly better to call gpuProcessConnectionDidBecomeAvailable() here instead -- in case someone adds "things to do when I get a GPU Process" logic in the future.
