Workspace preview does not transfer query parameters
If the URL called up when previewing from the TYPO3 backend contains additional query parameters, these should be passed on to the URLs of the iframe panels of the preview view.
I have no scenario from the Core to repeat this, but I was in a situation where I manually added query parameters to the URL and was surprised to find them being ignored. This is why I'm not submitting this patch outright, but rather just uploading it here for discussion.
Incidentally this patch resolves a "todo" that was mentioned inside the PreviewController about the language parameter not always being "L". With this patch all non-workspaces related GET query parameters are retrieved, so there's no worrying about which should be the language parameter.

How to test simply:
- preview any page from a workspace
- go to your browser's address bar and add "&foo=bar" to the URL
- check the frames info: the "&foo=bar" parameter does not appear
- apply the patch and repeat the process, "&foo=bar" should be visible in both (live and workspace) frames URLs
For the record, my real-world use case is with Tesseract's displaycontroller preview function, where some parameters are passed in particular to trigger a preview of hidden elements. Since I doubt anyone has such a setup available, the above test case does fine instead.
