Linked resources in incidents

Introduced in GitLab 15.3 with a flag named incident_resource_links_widget. Enabled on GitLab.com. Disabled on self-managed.

On self-managed GitLab, by default this feature is not available. To make it available, ask an administrator to enable the feature flag named incident_resource_links_widget. On GitLab.com, this feature is available.
