move archlinux(7) and locale.sh to filesystem
The new locale.sh makes DAEMON_LOCALE redundant, so we remove that functionality. A post-upgrade notice will be added. The new functionality will apply the settings to /etc/locale.conf system-wide, and allow each user to override it in $HOME/.config/locale.conf. Signed-off-by: Tom Gundersen <teg@jklm.no>

-archlinux - basic configuration
-Overview of the basic configuration of Arch Linux.
-Arch Linux exposes the user to the system without hiding any details. This manpage gives a
-brief overview of the configuration files that should be set up on a fresh install.
-The initscripts are configured in rc.conf. Here you configure what daemons to start on boot, what storage
-technologies should be enabled and, optionally, a basic network setup.
-The hostname of the machine should be set in /etc/hostname. Additionally, either /etc/hosts should be
-configured accordingly, or nss-myhostname should be used. This is needed so the hostname can always
-be resolved to the current machine, which is required by some programs.
-Various locales may be enabled in /etc/locale.gen, and generated by locale-gen. The system-wide locale to be used
-can be configured in /etc/locale.conf
-The virtual console is configured in /etc/vconsole.conf. It allows you to set a font and a keyboard layout, among
-other things. Note that these settings only apply to the console, and not if you use X.
-The local timezone is configured by *symlinking* /etc/localtime to the correct zoneinfo file under
-/usr/share/zoneinfo/. E.g.,
- /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Paris
-The real-time clock, which keeps track of time when the computer is off, can be configured to either
-be in UTC or in localtime in /etc/adjtime. The default is UTC.
-Filesystems are configured in /etc/fstab, and encryption mappings are configured in /etc/crypttab.
-The initramfs is generated by mkinitcpio, and can be configured in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf.
-The package manager, pacman, is configured in /etc/pacman.conf.
-GRUB's configuration is generated from /etc/default/grub by grub-mkconfig. Syslinux is configured in /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg
-Most modules should be loaded on-demand. Modules to be unconditionally loaded at boot can be specified in /etc/modules-load.d/,
-and modules to be blacklisted from auto-loading can be configured in /etc/modprobe.d/.
-rc.conf(5), hostname(5), hosts(5), nsswitch.conf(5), locale.conf(5), vconsole.conf(5), timezone(3), hwclock(8), fstab(5), crypttab(5),
-mkinitcpio(8), pacman(8), pacman.conf(5), grub-mkconfig(8), syslinux(1), modules-load.d(5), modprobe.d(5)
