API addition in Solid

I need a globally unique identifier for the devices listed by Solid. And 
Solid::Device::udi() is not that.

So I added the API and implementation for it, but the HAL implementation 
currently is just proof-of-concept and the fakecomputer.xml doesn't have any 
uniqueIdentifiers for now.

I need this to fix the problem of initial ordering of audio devices in phonon. 
Without a globally unique identifier I cannot have a "hardware database" 
where the ordering of devices can be "fixed".
