ubuntu-system-settings handles the lack of aethercast the same way widi
supported property not being set, it disables the controls.  Once the
backend needed by the external displays panel, this will be following
the same pattern as configured external displays that aren't currently

Bug description:
  After update to 182, the aethercast binaries disappeared from the
  system, leaving the external display page in system-settings broken.

  phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ system-image-cli -i
  current build number: 182
  device name: turbo
  channel: ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/meizu-pd.en
  last update: 2016-09-18 20:11:35
  version version: 182
  version ubuntu: 20160917
  version device: 20160824-d33b825
  version custom: 20160831-992-8-12

  UPDATE: I've been told the change to make aethercast an option suggestion in 
system-settings caused to not have aethercast pulled in in the image builds.

  It seems like there are 2 fixes needed:
  a) Seed aethercast in relevant phone images
  b) fix system-settings to hide the external display section when aethercast 
is not around. Currently the button is there but just does nothing.
