This integrates a fetch to Merino in UrlbarProviderQuickSuggest. We continue to
do the remote settings fetch too. Per the Jira ticket, we should prefer the
Merino suggestion when both sources return one.

Each fetch is controlled by a new pref and Nimbus variable, so we can enable
them independently.

At first I started making a UrlbarProviderMerino class, but it's better to
modify UrlbarProviderQuickSuggest because everything besides the fetch source is
the same: We want to collect the same telemetry, have the same results and
payloads, etc.

qe-verify- because some urgent Firefox Suggest patches we want to uplift depend on this bug, but this bug is not related to the Firefox Suggest offline/online rollouts and does not need to be verified by QA for those rollouts. The feature added by this bug is also preffed off. Once it's enabled, we should have a round of QA for that feature (Merino integration) specifically.
