bug#27620: systemd environment SSH_AUTH_SOCK in emacs.service

Hello -

The systemd service file "etc/emacs.service" sets the environmental variable 
SSH_AUTH_SOCK to "%t/keyring/ssh", which won't work for all users. I think 
that's a GNOME-specific thing, maybe?

In any case, it overwrites values of SSH_AUTH_SOCK that the user actually sets 
(in ~/.pam_environment, for example).

Would it be possible to remove that Environment line from the emacs.service 
file? Instead of guessing at what the value should be, maybe consider adding in 
the release notes or in the manual (if the systemd service has a section in the 
manual) that users can set the value of SSH_AUTH_SOCK by either 1) setting it 
session-wide in ~/.pam_environment, or 2) editing the emacs service file with 
"systemctl --user edit emacs.service" and adding something like below 
(replacing "%t/keyring/ssh" with the appropriate value):
