Add ability to log directly into new UI with a token
The new UI appears to be missing a way to supply an authentication token via the URL in order to automatically login to the UI (bypassing the username/password prompt).
This is a regression as the old UI had this available specifically so that TrueView could manage handing out login sessions to FreeNAS instances via temporary auth tokens.
If I recall correctly, the URL for the old UI just needed something like "?token=[auth_token]" appended in order to pass that token into the UI and the UI promptly redirected to the standard URL (so the user does not see the token) after saving the token into memory or something.

I will note that passing auth token to the URL poses a security issue.
Not sure how possible that is but we should investigate alternatives (e.g. using POST)
