Motivation for this change

When we did the revert of adding gnome-flashback to systemd.packages 0
I forgot to test with other display managers. If we use GDM with gnome-flashback
it appears it doesn't try to fallback to non-systemd startup and always fails and
starts the regular gnome-session. So adding gnome-flashback to systemd.packages
was perfectly fine, but we did forgot one detail. We need systemd targets for the
customSessions which is added using mkSystemdTargetForWm in the gnome-
flashback package.

This fixes starting gnome-flashback-metacity with gdm and all customSessions with GDM.
Though we still have the issue confirmed in #71212 (comment).

Edit: I have no idea what was going on with my grammar when I wrote this message 馃槃 I should probably rewrite it.
