Bump GLib dependency for tests to 2.40

This is quite old (it's the version in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and older
than the version in Debian 8) but gives us g_test_skip(),
g_test_trap_subprocess() and GVariantDict, all of which will be
useful in the regression tests.

Remove workarounds for old versions.

After this commit we are still using the deprecated g_test_trap_fork(),
which will be removed in a subsequent commit. Don't opt-in to the new
deprecation warnings from 2.38 and 2.40 yet, because under our recommended
settings for dbus developers (-Werror) they would break the build.
