Description

We have a readme page on how to run the fuzzers, and an unfinished devguide page on how to test
suricata with fuzzers.

This task is meant to cover updating the readme file and complete a v1 for the testing page.

This is a follow-up of the work done in https://github.com/OISF/suricata/pull/6569

I've been trying to write down something that would make it easier for a community contributor to run the fuzzers locally, especially in the case where our CIFuzz finds a bug in work contributed by them, which they'd ideally like to reproduce locally using the generated artifact, so they could try and fix the bug.

But I have failed, so far, in creating documentation showing how to run Suri fuzzers with oss-fuzz and using a local branch that is accessible and doesn't require lots of tweaking here and there.

You are likely the person with more experience in this, so I think you may be a more suitable contributor to the task, @Philippe Antoine :P
