Bug Description

Attempting to upload a file to a web page always fails. Tapping Browse on an input type=file opens the content picker; one then chooses a provider app, such as the Gallery; choose a file from the app; we then return to the browser... which reloads the page you were in because it was killed to free up memory. So file uploads just do not work.

As pointed out on the G+ post: We should look into adjusting the OOM score of a participant in a content exchange operation. However, we should not take the receiver out of the lifecycle equation, suspending the receiver is still a good idea.
