[SRU] Move Livepatch in a different tab as in Disco

Bug #1823761 reported by Andrea Azzarone on 2019-04-08

Bug Description

* Impact
The livepatch graphical interfaces are currently limited in bionic, there is no easy way to know the current status and the details of the changes applied. The new design improves the user experience and we want that to benefit the LTS users

* Test case
Open software-properties-gtk, you should see a livepatch new tab which has the detail of the status (including the CVEs fixes with the applied livepatch where there is one)

* Regression potential
The changes are mostly new code so check that the livepatch tab works correctly.
There is some UI refactoring so it's best to check that the other tabs still look the same.
Note that the changes include some new strings. Those are translated in disco and have been announced to the translators in march as coming to bionic for a SRU
Launchpad shares translations between series so we should get those translations included in the next bionic langpacks export.


Backport the new Livepatch tab from Disco.

Hi Andrea,

Do you have an ETA on verifying this SRU? I have a software-properties SRU that is blocked from getting into bionic-proposed until this is released. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1829017

I've had installed on bionic for some days, it works fine and the livepatch tab matches the design and work as expected (activate/desactivate the service, list applied changes, ...), I'm marking the SRU as verified
