Add docker box toolbar widget

This splits the 'dockers in popup palette' widget out into its own class, KisDockerHud, and modifies it so it can be used by multiple widgets at once without conflict. The second widget added to make use of this is a toolbar action called "Docker Box". This lets any docker be added to the toolbar in a temporary popup widget similar to the "Choose brush preset" one in Painter's Tools.

Discussed in this thread:

This also fixes the dockerhud to show the first item in the list if the previously selected item was removed from the list. And somehow prevents a bug where closing a document while still having the Layers docker open in the Popup Palette, and then opening a document would cause Krita to crash.


I'm not sure why the Wide Gamut Color Selector is so tall. Comparison of WGCS to Advanced Color Selector:


The Toolbox is also oddly tall.

Test Plan

Add "Docker Box" to the toolbar, see that it borrows dockers correctly. Test that having the actual docker, the docker in the popup palette, and the docker in the toolbar all open at once shows the docker in the toolbar (since it is opened last), with messages in the others stating such.
