bug#15045: Point jumps inappropriately around time of Semantic lexing

From: Barry OReilly
Subject: bug#15045: Point jumps inappropriately around time of Semantic lexing
Date: Fri, 25 Oct 2013 15:15:48 -0400

In terms of solving the issue of how Semantic calls
accept-process-output, here are two proposals:

1: Per David Engster:

> If you look in the `define-lex' macro, you see that it calls
> `semantic-throw-on-input' after each identified token. The problem is
> that it does not restore the cursor position before that, so I guess the
> fix is simply to change this call to
>        (save-excursion
>          (goto-char starting-position)
>          (semantic-throw-on-input 'lex))

Here's a patch to implement the basic idea. My debugging indicates
accept-process-output can be called when lexing other buffers, so I
saved off the marker rather than just position.

That said, I have never personally witnessed point unexpectedly
redisplayed in another buffer -- only within the same buffer. That
could be a consequence of how it interacts with the
jit-lock-deferred-fontify idle timer. (I have confirmed with my debug
statements that Semantic is the outer timer and
jit-lock-deferred-fontify is the inner timer which redisplays.)

Please let me know if this fix is suitable.

2: Extend accept-process-output to allow suppressing timer_check.
Actually, there's an input arg already for that, but only applicable
if the PROCESS arg is non nil.
