[geckoview] Audit and minimize GeckoView dependencies

Similar to Bug 1298529, but for code that GeckoView requires.  In fact, I see only *one* dependency (!), which is

dependencies {
    compile "${mozconfig.substs.ANDROID_SUPPORT_LIBRARY_VERSION}"

Even this is almost superfluous!  Together, Bug 1317197 and Bug 1317199 would let us remove even this dependency.  The reason to pursue this at all is that* take roughly 9000 methods in Fennec's DEX file; I imagine that would be similar in a consumer's DEX file.
