Notify systemd in daemon-initialized and kill-emacs (Bug#31498)

With --[bg-]daemon and Type=forking, systemd will only consider the
daemon to have fully started up once the original process exits, and
will wait until then to start units depending on the Emacs service.  To
get the same functionality with --fg-daemon, use Type=notify instead of
Type=simple and explicitly send a readiness notification to systemd at
the point where the forked process would in --bg-daemon mode notify its
parent process and cause it to exit.  Similarly, notify systemd at the
beginning of the shutdown process as well.  (Both of these calls are
successful no-ops if emacs was not started by systemd.)
* etc/emacs.service: Update Type.
* src/emacs.c (daemon-initialized) [HAVE_LIBSYSTEMD]:
* src/emacs.c (kill-emacs) [HAVE_LIBSYSTEMD]: Call sd_notify().

- you can use the new 'package-quickstart' so activation of packages does not
need to pay attention to 'package-load-list' or 'package-user-dir' any more.
** Emacs now notifies systemd when startup finishes or shutdown begins.
Units that are ordered after 'emacs.service' will only be started
after Emacs has finished initialization and is ready for use.
(If your Emacs is installed in a non-standard location and you copied the
emacs.service file to eg ~/.config/systemd/user/, you will need to copy
the new version of the file again.)
