DOC: add man pages for systemd-ask-password, systemd-*-ask-password-agent and systemd-machine-id-setup

Description of problem:
With the latest systemd in Fedora 15 branch, I have the following binaries
Atleast some of these appear to be helper binaries that shouldn't be called directly by the user. Should move these to libexec and for the rest, man pages should be added. Some of them are missing one.
These binaries are all at the right places since they need to be in $PATH.
systemd-analyze currently doesn't have a man page, since I don't want to make its interface official in any way by documenting it.
systemd-stdio-bridge is not a user command. It is used to implement "systemctl -H" and "systemctl -P", will only be called by systemd tools themselves, but it needs to be in the $PATH for that. I don't think a man page for a binary that is not supposed to be called by the user would be a good thing.
systemd, systemd-notify, systemd-nspawn, systemd-tmpfiles, systemd-cgls have man pages.
For systemd-ask-password, systemd-*-ask-password-agent and systemd-machine-id-setup I am happy to take man page patches!
I now added a man page for systemd-ask-password to systemd git.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Adding this to fit and finish tracker bug
Given that we will be only back porting important fixes for F15 at this point
in time I'm moving this RFE against Rawhide so it does not get forgotten or
lost in the EOL process.
systemd-*-ask-password-agent and systemd-machine-id-setup do have man pages now in F18 and newer. Closing.
