MySQL Router Linux generic downloads are missing the mysqlrouter service.

The equivalent MySQL Server ones do appear in the Linux generic downloads under support-files.

As a workaround we had to install one of the other Linux versions, and take the mysqlrouter service from there and modify it accordingly.

How to repeat:
Download mysql-router-8.0.18-linux-x86_64-minimal.tar.xz (same issue with the non minimal version)
Use tar xvf mysql-router-8.0.18-linux-x86_64-minimal.tar.xz
Note that the mysqlrouter service is no where to be found.

Suggested fix:
Add the mysqlrouter service to the Linux generic downloads so that we can just copy it to /etc/init.d/mysqlrouter and make any changes as required.
