extensionSystem: Create a file to flag that extensions are being loaded

When the extension system is loaded, create the
gnome-shell-disable-extensions file in the users runtime directory. This
file is automatically removed 60s later. The sole purpose of this file
is to be consumed by the systemd units. If the file exists, the systemd
units will disable extensions when the gnome-shell fails.
