Issue 8983: Lazy-load gr-avatar images

Reported by, May 10 2018

Issue description

Images shouldn't be loaded until they need to be shown (say if they're below the fold). Additionally, the page waits for the gr-avatar images to be loaded before the onload event is fired. The images loaded only have a cache-control max-age of one day.

Given the number of avatar images (should the instance be configured to show them) on each page load, this could be an easily-implemented solution with a win on the page Load metric:

+ Don't block the page load event on gr-avatar images.
+ Lazy-load based on visibility.
