Bug 1276198 didn't take care of adding keyed scalars to about:telemetry.

With bug 1277806 landing and keyed scalars starting to be picked up, we need to show them in about:telemetry.

That's the keyed scalars section rendered with the attached patch.

I'm exploding the list of keye -> value for each keyed scalar, basically rendering it the same way we do for "addons".

Another, cooler way to render this, that will pay off once we'll have more than 1 keyed scalar, is by adding the ability to toggle the key-values table for each scalar, by clicking on the keyed scalar name.

What do you think Georg, should we do it in this bug, leave it as it is, or file another bug to do the improvement work?

I think this is fine for now.
Let's do this and move on, we can always revisit this later.

This only changes about:telemetry and was tested manually, no need for a try push.

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/regressing bug #]: Bug 1277806, Bug 1303333
[User impact if declined]: The user won't be able to see search measurements gathered in about:telemetry
[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: None. This was manually tested and lived for a while on m-c.
[Risks and why]: Low to none, as this was went through manual QA and lived for a quite a while on m-c.
[String/UUID change made/needed]: The |aboutTelemetry.keyedScalarsSection| string was added, but the about:telemetry page is meant for developer use, so there's no real rush in translating it.

This patch can allow users to view the collected data for search in about:telemetry. Take it in 51 aurora.
