Fixes #2104.

When using Buffer shims in your application, such as, the IPC via remote currently handles TypedArrays (eg. UInt8Array) as objects and fails to transport the values as function params or return values.

This PR will add support for transporting TypedArrays between the renderer and main process. TypedArrays get converted to regular Arrays on the sending side (remote) and to Node.js Buffers on the receiving side (rpc-server).

Read the spec but wasn't sure if I should add a test and where to put it, so there's no test for this change. If you want to test this, I'd be happy to add one if you can advice where to put it.
