Run bird in foreground

Description of problem:
The systemd unit file doesn't run bird in a good way to integrate with the systemd journal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always able to reproduce.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install bird package
2. run "systemctl start bird.service"

Actual results:
The command used to exec the service is "/usr/sbin/bird". This results in bird daemonizing itself. Also, when I have "log stderr all", I see no logs from bird after start.

Expected results:
The command used should be "/usr/sbin/bird -f" so that bird runs in the foreground and integrates better with the systemd journal.

Additional info:
I added an attachment with a patch for the unit file at /usr/lib/systemd/system/bird.service.

I haven't seen any feedback on this request. I was wondering, does this seem like a reasonable change to make?

Attached is a patch against the current master of the fedpkg repository.

This also addresses things raised in #1397574

I'm happy to help with the package if you need more support.
