from #306 we need to make sure that livestatus and other neb modules do not fiddle with that, moving it after the typecast cuts, like we already did with address6 and ack expiry end_time.

core: re-enable state based escalation ranges, using cast tricks #2878

since we already broke the neb abi a while back, and livestatus
will probably never use any icinga headers itsself, we just
don't give a f*ck about that mad situation - we'll put the
attributes at the end of the structs, tricking the typcasts
leaving the neb api intact.

docs did not receive the configure flag either for a strange
reason, so we can remove that safely from the source as well.

core: fix wrong escalation notification due to state based escalation range behaviour changes

re-enabling the state based escalation ranges lead into a weird
behavorial change, as the general "is the escalation valid for a
notification" condition was met, but another filter was added (the state
checks and their counters).
Since the default users do not use state based escalation ranges, there
is no other way revoking that behaviour change than making this fully
optional, and reverting to the old known default behaviour by
introducing a new config option, which remains disabled by default.


this may not be the best idea within a bugfix release either, but still
it allows those actually wanting to use the state based escalation
ranges to use it without recompiling as we had the request to change
within #2878 already.

reverting to the old known behaviour will probably fix #3441 as well, as
it turns out to be the possible root cause for the faulty condition
checks when an escalation is valid for a notification.

livestatus will probably never support icinga in all its enhanced features, so we can probably add this without any further notice.
