lib/ui: introduce Invalidatable

Many Drawable implementations have their own Invalidate and OnInvalidate
functions, with an unexported onInvalidate field. However OnInvalidate and
Invalidate are usually not called in the same goroutine. This results in a race
on this field, e.g.:

To fix this, introduce a new type, Invalidatable, which protects the field.
Unfortunately the Drawable must be passed to the callback function in
Invalidate, so we still need to re-implement this in each Invalidatable user.

switch to tcell from termbox

This is a simple mostly straight forward switch to tcell in favor of
termbox.
It uses the tcell native api (not the compat layer) but does not make
use of most features.

Further changes should include moving to tcell's views.TextArea and the
general built in widget behaviour instead of the current ad hoc
implementation.
