Figure out what to do with viewport and <meta name="viewport"> on a docked device

Bug Description

Currently on mobile form factors, we enable 2 settings in Blink - viewportEnabled and viewportMetaEnabled. These are both disabled on desktop.

The former is enabled by passing --enable-viewport. The latter is enabled via content::WebPreferences::viewport_meta_enabled.

First of all, it looks like setting WebPreferences::viewport_meta_enabled implies --enable-viewport, so we can stop explicitly enabling that in Oxide.

But I'm not sure what to do with viewport meta - should we disable it on a device in desktop mode, or enable it everywhere?

Actually, --enable-viewport is required to enable pinch-zoom, unless we pass --enable-pinch (see bug 1547138)
