Ensure that only the latest promise updates the autocompleter state #7318

Fixes: #7317


Multiple promises can be resolving when using an autocompleter, and network conditions can determine which one actually gets to update the state. We only want the most recently created promise to update the state.

This keeps track of the most recent (or, active) promise, and only processes the result if the promise is still the most recent one.

How has this been tested?

I followed the following:

  1. put "sleep(5)" on the server side to simulate a slow network.
  2. set up two users with the following usernames and real names: admin - "Jamjam", james - "James Jamison"
  3. Carry out the typing test as described in #7317

The list of users updated correctly, and slow API requests didn't end up interfering with each other.

The code looks good to me and eliminates the race condition experience we've seen with the user completer.

Thank you!
