Reboot Required notification

I've improved the look and obviousness of the "Reboot Required"
notification, it's now a separate feature of update-notifier that
watches for the creation of /var/run/reboot-required.

Any packages using the existing code:

	if [ -x /usr/share/update-notifier/notify-reboot-required ]; then

Will continue to work as before, rather than copying in a standard
a /var/lib/update-notifier/user.d message this now touches the new

Any packages manually creating a user.d message can happily continue to
do so if they desire, however if that message simply says they need to
reboot they will probably want to switch to using the new notification
so should use the above shell snippet.
