Improve support for desktop restoration in daemon mode

* lisp/server.el (server-after-make-frame-hook): New hook.
(server-execute): Call it after creating a new frame or before
switching to a buffer shown in a client frame.  (Bug#30421)

* doc/emacs/misc.texi (Saving Emacs Sessions): Adjust advice for
restoring desktop in daemon mode to the new hook.
* doc/lispref/frames.texi (Creating Frames, Standard Hooks):
Document server-after-make-frame-hook.

* etc/NEWS: Mention server-after-make-frame-hook.

** New hook 'server-after-make-frame-hook'.
This hook is a convenient place to perform initializations in daemon
mode which require GUI features to be available. One example is
restoration of the previous session using the desktop.el package: put
the call to 'desktop-read' in this hook, if you want the GUI settings
to be restored, or if desktop.el needs to interact with you during
restoration of the session.
