Allow GTK theming for Ubuntu Budgie

Bug Description

Ubuntu Budgie uses gnome-screensaver for its lock-screen.

By default, gnome-screensaver does not provide a GTK+3 based style class - thus the lock screen is not themed by modern GTK+3 themes.

UB already has a patch (33_budgie_support.patch) that fixes a couple of issues.

I have updated this patch to allow GTK+3 theming via the style class "lock-dialog". This allows gnome-screensaver to the themed in the same way as the gnome-screensaver fork mate-screensaver which uses the same named style-class.

This has been tested using the GTK+3 theme adapta which has the MATE lock-screen style class "lock-dialog" .

I will be separately updating arc-theme (the theme used by Ubuntu Budgie) to provide theming for both mate-screensaver and gnome-screensaver (for Ubuntu Budgie).

Note - if its considered useful, I'm happy to rework this to move the style-class application to a separate patch to allow all desktops that use gnome-screensaver to be equally themed. However I've only tested this patch on Ubuntu Budgie and hence have restricted the style-class application to UB.
