Subject: [PATCH] generic/381: enable on systems which allows usernames that begin with digits

Some systems are not allowing usernames prefixed with a number now, this
test however relies on the assumption that you can end up with usernames
of such type, given the purpose of the test is to ensure that xfs_quota
can differentiate between UIDs and names beginning with numbers.

systemd >= 232 (circa 2017) no longer allows usernames starting with digits
[0], there is a systemd exploit (CVE-2017-1000082 [1]) for why that was done,
however even upstream shadow useradd also does not allow similar user types
since shadow version v4.0.1 (circa 2007) [2] but there no easy way to check
shadow's useradd's version.

You can still shoehorn in these types of users by manually editing files,
but that's just shooting yourself on the foot given all the precautions
taken now by userspace, so just check for the systemd version for now as
requirement for running this test.
