wpa_gui: Add tray icon based signal strength meter
System tray icon can be set to 5 different pictographs according to the connection status. One for disconnected state (not associated with the network, or not connected with the wpa_supplicant service), and four for connected status (showing the signal strength on the receiver). By default this functionality is disabled. The reason for this, is the fact, that the underlaying approach of this functionality is poll based, which might be considered as a non-efficient one. Update interval has to be set explicitly by the user with '-m<seconds>' command line argument. Status icon names are based on various Gnome icon packs (e.g., Faba). When icon can not be found, default one is shown (wpa_gui logo). Signed-off-by: Arkadiusz Bokowy <arkadiusz.bokowy@gmail.com>
