[Ovmsdev] C2DM is deprecated, no new sign-ups

As Mark wrote, for GCM I needed to switch to the 
latest Android SDK and support libs, which 
introduced all kinds of API deprecation and 
compatibility problems.

It was necessary to replace ActionBarSherlock by 
the support libs ActionBarCompat and to update the 
maps extensions lib.

The App now builds and starts again (on Android 
5.1, need to test other versions), but is not yet 

My next todos:
- Maps integration is broken and crashes 
occasionally now (it seems this was done wrong 
from the beginning)
- ActionBarCompat does not support a progress 
indicator, need to implement one
- GCM integration
- Fix ActionBarCompat & App theme styling
- Android 2.3 tests

There are still lots of API deprecation warnings 
remaining, which hopefully don't all need to be 
fixed right now...
