Allows web developers to use WebHID API in service worker context under Extension environment by exposing WebHID API to Extension Service workers.

Motivation

As Chrome Apps APIs chrome.hid will soon be deprecated, developers are encouraged to migrate to web apps or Chrome Extensions. For the Chrome Extension case, manifest V3 deprecates the background page and recommends developers to migrate to service workers. As a result, it is required to support WebHID in service workers.
