    gmirror.8: Remove references rc.early

    The manual page of gmirror describes how gmirror providers can be used
    for kernel dumps. Unfortunately, the instruction references
    /etc/rc.early, which is no longer a part of rc(8).

    Remove references to rc.early and suggest creating an rc(8) service
    script instead.

    Future work: In the Problem Report on Bugzilla, Lawrence Chen suggested
    adding example rc(8) scripts to the gmirror. However, those examples
    need to be tested before they become official reference examples in the
    base. Also, those scripts should probably land directly to /etc/rc.d,
    /usr/share/examples/rc.d, or /usr/share/examples/gmirror instead of the
    gmirror manual page.
