Add telemetry for content blocker usage (amount of permissions)

It would be great if we had simple telemetry that, maybe at startup, measured the amount of permissions that are relevant to content blocker usage. This is very likely only the image permission, but we should just collect all of them in a keyed scalar to make sure we don't forget about anything.

This could be recorded similarly to how we record content blocking telemetry at startup:
