Redesigned on/off switch

This release of Cockpit features a redesigned on/off switch. Compared with the old version, the new switch is easier to use (with a bigger clickable area), uses iconography to avoid translation problems, is accessible, and is keyboard-navigatable. The new design corresponds to the design of the switch from PatternFly 4.

The switch also features a native-like keyboard focus indicator: a blue glow for Chrome/WebKit-based browsers and a dotted outline for Firefox.
