Draft: Port to Tutamen

Tutamen is a PolKit agent implementation library w/ support for simultaneous with with multiple PAM sessions. This means that you can use fingerprint/smartcard/password in any order.

Marked as draft because most UI plumbing is missing, as well as better reliability/not showing intermediate states. TL;DR: authentication works, but UI is wonky. Also haven't ported the mobile auth dialog yet.

Tutamen can be installed from here:

It works like any other CMake project, with the caveat that you need to SUID the helper binary as root, like so:

sudo chown root:root /home/jblackquill/KDE/usr/lib64/libexec/TutamenHelper
sudo chmod +s /home/jblackquill/KDE/usr/lib64/libexec/TutamenHelper
