As the geoclue2 (wolfpack) backend appears to have questionable history, no
clear licensing/copyright information, and doesn't actually work currently
anyway, remove it from the images.

With this change, we will no longer receive location assisted by the Mozilla Location Service via geoclue2. This means that the device GPS will always be used for any location locks, which can take from 2 minutes to an hour depending on GPS signal strength.

Since we have so many users who have trouble with geoclue2, this will be an improvement. We can also use the simpler codebase to improve in the future.

Goodbye, wolfpack. You were good to us.

I spent today trying to stress test the location system.

I must say that removing wolfpack seems to fix a lot of problems, as despite my best efforts there was no crashing of the location system.

Initial fix took 10+ mins, but after that it was pretty quick.

Today is the first time I was able to use google maps in Morph without problems. On stable, just allowing a site to access location usually caused the location system to freeze requiring a reboot to restore functionality. Today Morph still doesn't work properly, as the dot in google maps stays grey and the view doesn't follow along as your location changes, but when repeatedly updating my location the website kept working and I have yet to reboot.
