Favicon takes a long time to load

I'm using passenger standalone and nginx as proxy webserver. Redmine is v5.0.2.

I've noticed that favicon isn't cached, and takes a ridiculous amount to load (~30ms).

While caching should be configured at webserver level, I've noticed that when I remove versioning from the favicon, it only takes about 4ms to load it.

This is a simple patch, maybe it would be better to remove some more of the code related to favicon, but I'm not familiar with ruby.

The following code will also work if a third-party theme provides a favicon.

diff --git a/app/helpers/application_helper.rb b/app/helpers/application_helper.rb
