Write the fennec implementation of the Wi-Fi Direct backend for FlyWeb.

Attached patch wifi-direct-backend.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Initial patch.  Doesn't do much yet, but the basic boilerplate for shimming between C++ and the Java code is there.
Whiteboard: [necko-would-take]
Latest patch.
Attachment #8726964 - Attachment is obsolete: true
So, after much experimentation and reading up online, the conclusion is that Wi-Fi Direct support in the wild is just not up to par.  Both device discovery and service discovery on even flagship Android devices is super flaky.  Sometimes services are seen, sometimes not.

It seems adoption and implementation in devices for Wi-Fi Direct is not there yet, so I'm shelving this implementation effort until we revisit at a later time if/when WiDi is better supported.
