Bug Description

* Impact

Ubuntu 18.04 includes desktop integration for thunderbolt devices though bolt and recent GNOME integration. The settings part of the feature missed 18.04 but landed upstream since. The new panel allows to review the list of authorized devices and revoke access, see https://christian.kellner.me/2018/04/23/the-state-of-thunderbolt-3-in-fedora-28/ for details (fedora backported the feature in there recent 28 version)

* Test case

- Connect a thunderbolt device
- Accept the authentification
- Go to settings -> devices -> thunderbolt

The device should be listed as "authorized"

You can also try to disable the authorization and see that the device gets correctly denied then

* Regression impact

It's a new UI so there is no possible regression in an existing fonctionnality.

Note that the new strings have been manually added to the bionic translations template some time ago which means they should have a correct level of translations in the next langpacks update
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-translators/2018-May/007496.html

The patches serie has a small change of behaviour in that subpanel use the main settings icons now, that solves the issue were some panels didn't have a correct icon (including the thunderbolt one).
