counsel.el: Simplify variable completion
(counsel--variable-p): New predicate.
(counsel-describe-variable, counsel-set-variable): Use it.
(counsel-variable-list): Remove, replacing with counsel--variable-p.
Use custom-variable-p in counsel-set-variable
counsel.el (counsel-set-variable):
Use custom-variable-p instead of inspecting the custom-type
property, which is only set when a defcustom has a :type.

Re: #1643
Widen counsel-describe-function collection
counsel.el (counsel-describe-function):
Describe also unbound but documented function symbols.

Just chiming in to thank @basil-conto for the immense work. ivy/counsel/swiper are so central to my daily workflow it's just awesome to see such valuable efforts on improving on them.

@manuel-uberti Thanks, but I'm mostly just doing minor refactors/prettifications, which I guess is my way of becoming more familiar with the codebase. :)

The real thanks are due to @abo-abo and the many other valuable contributors who brought this and related projects to fruition, and who continue to maintain them.
