MDL-58889 boost: Use underline links in footer

It's impossible to gain the right colour contrast against a dark footer
using the same primary colour that gets 4.5 against white.

* For improved accessibility, the footer links for boost have been changed to use $bg-inverse-link-color (defaults to white) and
now have an underline text-decoration. To override the link colour simply set $bg-inverse-link-color in your preset file or
theme scss.
