Issue 914470: Remove data saver extension recommendation notification

Reported by, Dec 12 Project Member

Issue description

When a user first uses mobile data, they're shown a notification suggesting them to install a data saver extension - when clicked it is supposed to open the extension's page in the Chrome Web Store.
The extension seems to have been recently removed from the web store, so now clicking the notification opens up a 404 page.

Let's remove the notification.

cros: Remove data saver extension notification

Stop showing chromeos users a notification prompting them to install a
data saver extension the first time they connect with a cellular
connection. Extension was recently removed.

Remove flag 'enable-datasaver-prompt' and deprecate

Add more tests to validate that notifications are only shown once.

tbarzic@ should I request a merge to get this fixed in 72? Or do you think it's ok to wait for 73 ?

Did this need to be fixed? The plugin in question seems to still be available. It was last updated on the same day this issue was reported, so perhaps it was only mistakenly removed?
