Feature: Wifi Settings UI Enable/Disable


This feature allows for displaying the Wifi Settings UI. Additionally a flag can be set to allow editing Wifi settings.

The basics for this feature involve using a new layout item properties of action and wifiSettingsEnabled. These values coupled with improved icon processing allow for displaying a 'Settings' shortcut that will open the 'Wifi' Display UI.
