Allow Android apps to use notification LEDs

At the moment Android apps cannot access LED for notifications. This means for example that you miss any notifications from messaging apps when you didn't hear the notification sound.

As android notifications are not visible at the lock screen you constantly have to check the notification view in order to see whether anyone has written a message to you.

With access to notification LEDs one would at least know that there are new messages waiting to be read.

Especially now that Mitäkuuluu users are being banned by Whatsapp, more and more Jolla users will switch to the official android app. These people would definitely benefit from the proposal. I don't endorse the usage of Whatsapp but rather recommend TextSecure. But the notification situation is the same there...
