// How history autocomplete works
// ==============================
// Read down this diagram for temporal ordering.
// Main thread History thread
// ----------- --------------
// AutocompleteController::Start
// -> HistoryURLProvider::Start
// -> SuggestExactInput
// [params_ allocated]
// -> DoAutocomplete (for inline autocomplete)
// -> URLDatabase::AutocompleteForPrefix (on in-memory DB)
// -> HistoryService::ScheduleAutocomplete
// (return to controller) ----
// /
// HistoryBackend::ScheduleAutocomplete
// -> HistoryURLProvider::ExecuteWithDB
// -> DoAutocomplete
// -> URLDatabase::AutocompleteForPrefix
// /
// HistoryService::QueryComplete
// [params_ destroyed]
// -> AutocompleteProviderListener::OnProviderUpdate
// The autocomplete controller calls us, and must be called back, on the main
// thread. When called, we run two autocomplete passes. The first pass runs
// synchronously on the main thread and queries the in-memory URL database.
// This pass promotes matches for inline autocomplete if applicable. We do
// this synchronously so that users get consistent behavior when they type
// quickly and hit enter, no matter how loaded the main history database is.
// Doing this synchronously also prevents inline autocomplete from being
// "flickery" in the AutocompleteEdit. Because the in-memory DB does not have
// redirect data, results other than the top match might change between the
// two passes, so we can't just decide to use this pass' matches as the final
// results.
// The second autocomplete pass uses the full history database, which must be
// queried on the history thread. Start() asks the history service schedule to
// callback on the history thread with a pointer to the main database. When we
// are done doing queries, we schedule a task on the main thread that notifies
// the AutocompleteController that we're done.
// The communication between these threads is done using a
// HistoryURLProviderParams object. This is allocated in the main thread, and
// normally deleted in QueryComplete(). So that both autocomplete passes can
// use the same code, we also use this to hold results during the first
// autocomplete pass.
// While the second pass is running, the AutocompleteController may cancel the
// request. This can happen frequently when the user is typing quickly. In
// this case, the main thread sets params_->cancel, which the background thread
// checks periodically. If it finds the flag set, it stops what it's doing
// immediately and calls back to the main thread. (We don't delete the params
// on the history thread, because we should only do that when we can safely
// NULL out params_, and that must be done on the main thread.)
// Used to communicate autocomplete parameters between threads via the history
// service.
