Add Copy Stack button to Red Box (iOS)

Added a button to the iOS Red Box to enable copying of the error and stack trace to the clipboard to make it easier to paste the error and stack into bug reports or other text windows. Clicking the Copy button on the bottom of the RedBox screen or pressing Cmd-Option-C keyboard shortcut in the simulator will copy the full stack trace as text to the iOS pasteboard and when in the simulator you can then hit Command-C to get the text to the Mac's pasteboard for pasting in your favorite reporting/tracking app.

No tests for this change - I don't see any tests to extend for the RCTRedBoxWindow class. No impact on APIs or core React Native functionality. I validated it by running test React Native apps with red box errors and both hitting the copy button or using the command key shortcut in the emulator to get the text of the stack to the iOS pasteboard.
Closes #7557
