gtrace: Add sysprof tracing support infrastructure

Add some internal wrappers around sysprof tracing, so that it can be
used throughout GLib without exposing all the details of sysprof
internally.

This adds an optional dependency on `libsysprof-capture-4`. sysprof
support is disabled without it.

This depends on the GLib dependency of `libsysprof-capture` being
dropped in sysprof!30,
which has bumped the soname of `libsysprof-capture` and added subproject
support.

The next few commits will add marks that trace out each `GMainContext`
iteration and each `GSource` `check`/`prepare`/`dispatch` call.

* @Title: Performance tracing
* @Short_description: Functions for measuring and tracing performance
*
* The performance tracing functions allow for the performance of code using
* GLib to be measured by passing metrics from the current process to an
* external measurement process such as `sysprof-cli` or `sysprofd`.
*
* They are designed to execute quickly, especially in the common case where no
* measurement process is connected. They are guaranteed to not block the caller
* and are guaranteed to have zero runtime cost if tracing support is disabled
* at configure time.
*
* Tracing information can be provided as ‘marks’ with a start time and
* duration; or as marks with a start time and no duration. Marks with a
* duration are intended to show the execution time of a piece of code. Marks
* with no duration are intended to show an instantaneous performance problem,
* such as an unexpectedly large allocation, or that a slow path has been taken
* in some code.
