Grant admin polkit privileges to lightdm user (LP: #855556)

During a live session, the 'ubuntu' user is logged in on every VT. However,
we have:

/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.consolekit.policy

 org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.restart-multiple-users
  <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active>
 org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.stop-multiple-users
  <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active>

Thus, the shutdown and restart items from the Unity greeter's session
indicator are inhibited.

Those items should work, and we can do so by granting admin privileges to
lightdm / unity-greeter, which allows restart and shutdown from the greeter
screen.

We already grant admin privileges to the default user in the live session,
so allowing the user to shutdown from the live session's greeter screen
should be considered conceptually similar.

bin/casper-a11y-enable: Call dbus-send with the --print-reply command-line
argument, and send the output to null, as we don't need it. For some
reason dbus-send only executes our commands when --print-reply is given.

bin/casper-reconfigure: Unset DEBIAN_HAS_FRONTEND, DEBIAN_FRONTEND, and
