Bug Description

This is a breakaway bug from bug 1347001.

During a call, position the phone such that the proximity sensor is not enabled, i.e. put phone on table. Let the screen shut off after an idle timeout.

The screen should turn on when the phone is moved or screen is touched. This is what Android and iOS do anyway, and probably what users expect.

I'm assuming that powerd is the logical place to have that logic, but maybe I'm wrong. Please feel free to re-assign.

The assumption here is that the speaker ouput mode or a blue tooth evice is used for the call?

Not necessarily - there are two possible approaches here:
1. The screen never times out while on a call and not close to the ear. It only dims about 50%. If phone dims wile held to ear, unlocking it will show user the active call screen.
2. The screen never dims wile on a call via bluetooth device or speaker output mode is enabled but it does if not any of those connections is detected. Even if the phone locks (dims), if unlocked returns back to active call screen.

summary: - Turn screen on when phone is moved during a call
