Directly require clipboard from Electron #16526
Description of the Change
As far as I can tell the "safe-clipboard" workaround was for an Electron bug that was fixed somewhere around atom-shell 0.24.0. Searching for "clipboard linux" on the electron issues list doesn't yield any crash results and the docs don't have anything Linux-specific, so I think that we should be good now.
Why Should This Be In Core?
This cleans up some old code present in core.
Requiring the clipboard is more straightforward.
It is possible that the crash still exists and I'm searching for the wrong thing.
I currently don't have a Linux distribution set up, so I'm unable to verify that using the renderer clipboard does not crash Atom.
