The search box and entity suggester should make use of language fallback. It should be consistent with the language fallback chain used for the entity view.

|Resolved||daniel||T76150 add language fallback to entity search/suggester (wbsearchentities)|
|Resolved||daniel||T88441 investigate how language fallbacks can be done in entity search|
From my point of view this is quite a regression. Consider the following setting:
- P1 has a label in en, and no label in de
- Q1 has a statement on P1
- Q2 has no statement on P1
- UI language is de
A user takes a look at Q1, sees the fallback label, understands it and wants to add a statement for this property on Q2. The entity suggester would not allow her to do it via fallback label. Previously, she would have seen the property id in the statement on Q1, which the entity suggester would have allowed.
