[rancid] Diffs for custom commit remarks

I needed a way to add a custom commit remark instead of the stock hard
coded version. I made a few tweaks to the rancid-run and control_rancid
scripts to make this work for me. I thought some of you might like this
as well.

The only shortcoming of this is that the remark is limited to a single
'word' with no whitespace. As in "Thisismyremark" not "This is my remark".

This is probably easily fixed I just didn't bother as it wasn't needed
for my application.

Diffs attached.

Of course all normal disclaimers apply. I can't be held responsible if
my diffs break your routers and switches. :)
