Show on the splascreen how many extensions updates are available.

It should work just like the status bar #120610, with the same tooltip, and same effect if you click on it (opens User Preference ready to install the extensions).

Unlike the status bar, this can be visible even when there are no available updates (I imagine a new icon for this, but the change can go in with the INTERNET icon first):

If any of the repositories has "Check for Updates on Startup" enabled, we do do a non-blocking check ...

... and only then show how many (if any) updates are available:

I think this link fits better in right column, for two reasons: both operators on left side are local ones, and both on the right connect to internet, and secondly it's a muscle memory to click Recover Last and it would mess with that

Committed blender/blender-addons-contrib@516fd69d76 which implements most of this task.

The only remaining TODO is the icon displaying the number of updates.
Currently this is just shown as text as supporting numbers overlaying icons isn't supported exposed to Python.

Closing this task as it has been completed except for the icon + number which specialized UI functionality - nice to have, the status-text is usable without this.

There should be a check box beside the option that would allow us to check on the update each and every time we start blender or check it off to by pass checking of updates altogether

@Pranay-Vaidya checking for updates is optional, it can be set per repository.
