Provide systemd services for the JobControl and DIM DNS servers

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/systemd-services into main


As the title says, this MR aims at providing systemd units for the xDAQ JobControl and DIM DNS server. This is one of the last steps to clean up the p5 setup before Run-3.

Additionally, the gemdaq and gem folders/prefix have been unified in the client applications as it was the case for gemharware previously.

How Has This Been Tested?

The xDAQ executive started by gem-start-xdaq is working like usual, all resources are found. The files packaged in the RPM are the expected ones. Tests pending at p5.
