A pref value should be added that controls whether the websocket connection for Push is opened even when there are no push subscriptions (always-on).


Rationale:

Currently, our Push service has had synthetic benchmarks showing its ability to handle 10 million concurrent connections. Our synthetic testing clients may not perfectly simulate the real Firefox clients and connection handling. We should have the ability to pref control whether the push connection channels is opened so that we can verify our ability to handle all Firefox clients connecting via either System Add-Ons or SHIELD.
