Restrict Gamepad usage

Requires a secure context for the Gamepad API and adds a feature policy to allow restricting gamepad use.

Motivation

The Gamepad API has been around for awhile and is widely used. However, recent pushes for privacy have brought the possibility for this API to be used for finger printing to our attention. These changes mitigate the finger printing risk.
