fill: Add AutostartWhitelist key to session file
gnome-session currently has an autostart directory override. The purpose of this is to disable the usual autostart applications and only start whatever is in the given autostart directory. The nice thing about this is that it is possible (even for third parties) to extend the autostart list. The bad part is that it is an odd mechanism of partially disabling autostart. One that cannot be mapped appropriately to e.g. a systemd generator. To improve this, add a new AutostartWhitelist key. This key effecitvely disables autostart (if left empty) and one can add a whitelist of applications that should still be started (in the login screen, as that is the only real user). The disadvantage is that it means distributions need to e.g. add spice-vdagent uconditionally to this list rather than installing it into /usr/share/gdm/greeter/autostart. The advantage is that the key can be appropriately resolved without passing any magic parameters or environment variables over from GDM to the gnome-session. It also means that quite a bit of code can be removed from gnome-session.
