    Don't return any error in manager_dispatch_notify_fd() · 084e2c59

    If manager_dispatch_notify_fd() fails and returns an error then the
    handling of service notifications will be disabled entirely leading to a
    compromised system.
    
    For example pid1 won't be able to receive the WATCHDOG messages anymore
    and will kill all services supposed to send such messages.
    
    Fixes: CVE-2016-7796
    Closes: #839607
