JPEG decoding speedup

Two important patches just got checked into the trunk of Mozilla. Both improve the JPEG decoding procedure. Since a lot of the images on the web are JPEG, this is very important improvement for the overall performance of the browser. Speed improvements are always welcome.

Read more here:
- Speed up JPEG decoding by 30% by skipping buffer
- Speed up JPEG decoding by another 10%

It seems that the two patches overall improved the JPEG decoding with 17% improvement on Windows.

I think that the two patches will get included in Mozilla Firefox 3.
