Bug Description

AsyncPreview doesn't allow null preview argument for preview_ready signal, resulting in critical errors and no preview at all.
Current code of async preview handling in libunity was designed to return GenericPreview in such case, but it's never reached because of wrong signature of preview_ready.
This behaviour can be reproduced with current (as of 2nd Oct) stock Quantal, when previewing u1ms shopping lens items.
