login-sessions: Add a script to enable/disable system D-Bus services (a.k.a. KAuth6 fix)

Jakob Petsovits requested to merge work/jpetso/kauth6-for-dev-sessions into master

Required to use locally built KAuth helper binaries instead of the ones provided by your OS. Will stop similarly named services in a co-installed Plasma 5 session from working correctly. (Plasma 5 vs. 6 co-installation is not supported anyway.)

Edit: This will not update your polkit authorization rules and action policies. !1715 is a more comprehensive approach to cover those as well. The manual way to fix polkit issues after using this MR's script would be to manually copy polkit files such as powerdevil/daemon/org.kde.powerdevil.chargethresholdhelper.policy from your build directory to /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/. Polkit does not appear to support /usr/local overrides.

On the upside, action declarations change rarely and if you just want to pick up new behavior of existing defined actions, this MR will do the job.

BUG: 476118

This is my alternative to MR !3257, which I found to be a dead end. Addresses dev session troubles caused by frameworks/kauth!45 (merged). Use the new script like this:

~/kde/build/plasma-workspace/login-sessions/ enable  # to prioritize locally built versions
~/kde/build/plasma-workspace/login-sessions/ disable # to revert back to what the OS provides

Plus a tiny clean-up commit for
