    CB-11858: Add possibility to utilize Android M feature "LightStatusBar"

    ### Platforms affected
    Android 6.0+
    ### What does this PR do?
    This PR adds support for the LightStatusBar style in Android. I re-used the already existing
config "StatusBarStyle" for this, as it has a similar effect on iOS (changing the foreground
color of the status bar to black instead of white).
    Something I'd like to discuss is, if "lightcontent" is the correct default value. The
documentation says it is, but I don't think it actually is on iOS, is it? I think the iOS
default is actually blackopaque?
    Let me know what you think :)
    ### What testing has been done on this change?
    Tested in emulator & on Samsung Galaxy S7.

> Since Android M, it's supported to have a light status bar, which will have black text,
instead of white text. That allows to have status bar backgrounds that might be lighter than
> There is already something similar for iOS (StatusBarStyle), so it would be easy to add.
I already have the code here (,
I just need to go through the ICLA signing..
