docs: add terse distribution porting guide

Porting systemd To New Distributions
You need to make the follow changes to adapt systemd to your
distribution:
0) Make your distribution recognized via the autoconf checks
in configure.ac. Grep for the word "fedora" (case
insensitively) and you should be able to find the places where
you need to add/change things.
1) Patch src/hostname-setup.c so that systemd knows where to
read your host name from.
2) Check the unit files in units/ if they match your
distribution. Most likely you will have to make additions to
units/*.m4 and create a copy of units/fedora/ with changes for
your distribution.
3) Adjust Makefile.am to register the unit files you added in
step 2. Also you might need to update the m4 invocation in
Makefile.am. Grep for the word "fedora" (case insensitively)
and you should be able to find the places where you need to
add/change things.
4) Try it out.
CONTRIBUTING UPSTREAM:
We are interested in merging your changes upstream, if they
are for a big, and well-known distribution. Unfortunately we
don't have the time and resources to maintain
distribution-specific patches for all distributions on the
planet, hence please do not send us patches that adds systemd
support to non-mainstream or niche distributions.
Thank you for understanding.
