doc/systemd: system service example

Stefan Agner requested to merge agners/weston:weston-systemd into main

There are many bad and even worse attempts to make Weston run as a systemd service, and very few good ones. Let's add a good one as an example in upstream: does not use weston-launch, does not run weston as root, does not need wrapper scripts, and relies on logind and PAM.

This example has been composed from a couple of real-world Weston unit files used in production.

The service file is not installed by the build. It would likely need small adjustments for each distribution or system to be deplyed on.

@pq I allowed to put myself author to avoid wrongly attributed mentions on Gitlab. We are probably around 50% of contribution each, let me know if you prefer it the other way around.
