Port ssh-agent from gnome-keyring

Daiki Ueno requested to merge wip/dueno/ssh-agent into master

This series turns the ssh-agent wrapper, currently hosted as a sub-daemon of gnome-keyring-daemon, into a standalone binary in gcr (/usr/libexec/gcr-ssh-agent). That would make the service manageable by systemd.

The gcr-ssh-agent executable takes a base directory of sockets: the one pointed by SSH_AUTH_SOCK and the other that is used by internally spawned ssh-agent. It shall be socket activated through the former socket, but I'm not completely sure how the systemd unit file should look like in this case.
