Patch to calendar(1) to skip reserved UIDs


    When using calendar(1) with periodic and a config for the root user,
multiple reports will be sent due to system user accounts using /root as their
homedir (e.g. toor & daemon). 

Steps to Reproduce: 

    0) Prerequisite: working local mail delivery

    1) Create calendar(1) config as the root user

        # mkdir ~root/.calendar
        # echo '#include <calendar.all>' > ~root/.calendar/calendar

    2) Enable calendar(1) periodic script

        # sysrc -f /etc/periodic.conf daily_calendar_enable="YES"

    3) Wait for daily periodic mail

Actual Results:

    Receive 3 e-mails from the reminder service (one for root, one for toor,
and one for daemon).

Expected Results: 

    Should only receive 1 reminder e-mail, for root.

Build Date & Hardware: 

    FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT #5 r360989: Sun May 17 06:56:59 UTC 2020

Additional Information:

    This patch makes it so the `-a` argument to calendar(1) will exclude UIDs
less than 1000 (with an exception for the root user only).
