battery_status_service: disable more privacy nightmares
The W3C Battery Status API has quite a laughable statement: "The information disclosed has minimal impact on privacy or fingerprinting, and therefore is exposed without permission grants". Along comes a paper "The leaking battery, A privacy analysis of the HTML5 Battery Status API." Clean up after the W3C and disable the battery status updater which could be used to identity users.  http://www.w3.org/TR/battery-status/  https://eprint.iacr.org/2015/616.pdf References: https://github.com/iridium-browser/iridium-browser/issues/40
