Fix errors in munin plugin configuration with regard to users and groups.

@tsibley tsibley Run the munin-stats plugin as the munin user so it can read the logs
Otherwise it runs as user nobody, group munin and can't read the files:

    root@bm-n2:~# munin-run --debug munin_stats
    # Processing plugin configuration from
    # /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/munin-node
    # Set /rgid/ruid/egid/euid/ to /110/65534/110 110 /65534/
    # Setting up environment
    # About to run '/etc/munin/plugins/munin_stats'

@tsibley tsibley The exim munin plugins are named exim_* not exim4_*; run them using D…

If this was working in the past then the munin exim plugins changed
names and dropped the 4.  I don't see that the exim munin plugins
themselves are provisioned from puppet, so who knows where they came
