The User's Guide contains a list of loggers provided by the Kea core code. However, we have many hooks libraries (both open source and premium) which provide their own loggers but aren't documented. This should be addressed because hook lib users won't know how to configure the logging specific to their hook libraries.

I updated the list of loggers in the User's Guide. In fact, I turned this list into a table which avoids repeating the descriptions of loggers for DHCPv4 and DHCPv6. It also includes an information where the logger is used (core code or Kea hook library).

Because various loggers in premium repo used random names for loggers I renamed many of them to follow the same naming scheme. This is incompatible but needed change in my opinion.

Proposed ChangeLog entry for main repo:

14XX.	[doc]		marcin
	Updated list of loggers in the Kea Administrator's Manual.
	The updated list contains all loggers, including those
	from supported hooks libraries.
	(Trac #5622, git cafe)

and for premium repo:

XX.	[bug]*		marcin
	Renamed several loggers to conform with the naming scheme
	for Kea loggers. This is an incompatible change which
	may require modifications to the logging setup in existing
	installations to use the new names.
	(Trac #5622, git cafe)

Your changes are fine. We should probably add a mention of the renaming of the logger names in the release notes so people are aware of it.

Please merge.
