krb5-kpropd.service cannot be started because the service file is missing "Type=forking".

Version krb5 1.16-1

Steps to reproduce:

systemctl start krb5-kpropd


Apply the attached patch. While here, remove the deprecated -S flag.

Wouldn't it make more sense to use -d and prevent forking? Or ask upstream to provide a foreground mode that does not enable debugging prints...

Also could be useful to ask upstream to distribute systemd services for everyone to use rather than requiring distros to implement them downstream and maybe get it wrong...

Curious why this wasn't a problem for the last five and a half years though!
