  [ffe] Install bolt by default for thunderbolt devices support

Status in gnome-shell package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Bolt is a new component that is handling the authentification of
  thunderbolt-3 devices. Without a way to authentificate the devices
  those can't be used so it's sort of an important hardware enablement
  type of feature.

  The MIR for bolt has been approved as bug #1752056, including a
  security review.

  GNOME 3.28 (which is what we have in bionic) already include the UI
  side for the user prompting, the request is just to install the
  service by default so things work out of the box.
