 In the proposed patch, a minimal approach that removes `z-index` where not
 necessary. The spinner is now a CSS pseudo element natively stacked above
 the full overlay and below the iframe. No need for `z-index`. As far as
 I've tested, should work in all browser except the Theme installer in IE
 because IE doesn't allow iframe transparency when the iframe `src`
 attribute is set to an external domain.

 Places where to check the patch:
 - the "customize container" which opens for example when clicking
 "Customize" on the currently active theme in "Themes" (actually there are
 2 spinners here, the first one initially displayed in the center of the
 page and then a second one in the right frame preview)
 - the standard Customizer right frame preview, for example clicking
 "Customize" on the toolbar from the front end
 - the Theme installer (Themes > Add New > Details & Preview on any theme
 and then browse themes
