Introduce project_settings table

Toon -Claes requested to merge tc-create-project-settings into master

What does this MR do?

There is no usable data in this table yet, but with this change the table is created, it's backfilled for every existing project, and new rows are created as new projects are created. When the background migration is complete it should be fairly easy to add columns to this table and store project settings data in this table instead of in the projects table itself. This should prevent the projects table from growing bigger.

This is a first step toward: #19826
