Defer the rendering of nonvisible suggestions #903

Description of the Change

Change the rendering logic to render suggestions that aren't initially visible during idle time.

Alternate Designs

The designs mostly vary around when to do the rendering work that is being deferred. For instance, we could decide to do it on the first scroll event, but this seems like a more complicated implementation.


Rendering latency between keystroke and suggestion list display should be reduced since we are rendering less before painting.

Possible Drawbacks

It's harder to test the rendering since requestIdleCallback callbacks never get called during testing because we are never idle. :(
