Bug#948951: libpam-gnome-keyring README suggests adding to other xDMs where already present

Package: libpam-gnome-keyring
Version: 3.34.0-1
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/doc/libpam-gnome-keyring/README.Debian

The README.Debian in for libpam-gnome-keyring states that GDM integrates
it into its PAM config, but it needs to be added manually for other DMs.

Currently, at least lightdm ships config for it, as do (according to
code search[1]) LXDM and SDDM.

Suggested text to replace the README body:

> The default PAM configurations for GDM, gnome-screensaver and several
> other display managers and screensavers already use pam_gnome_keyring.
> Password change is also implemented through the global PAM
> configuration.
> If you want to start gnome_keyring from addiional display managers, you
> need to add the following lines to the corresponding /etc/pam.d/?dm
> file:
