[ Michael Biebl ]
* Don't return any error in manager_dispatch_notify_fd().
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. (CVE-2016-7796)
(Closes: #839607)
* core: Rework logic to determine when we decide to add automatic deps for
This adds a concept of "extrinsic" mounts. If mounts are extrinsic we
consider them managed by something else and do not add automatic ordering
Extrinsic mounts include API mounts such as everything below /proc, /sys,
/dev. This avoids a crash in LXC containers where /dev/urandom is a bind
mount from the host system and unmounting it leads to an assert in
systemd. (Closes: #818978)
* Various ordering fixes for ifupdown.
Run ifup after all kernel modules have been loaded and all sysctl settings
are applied. Update ifup@.service to add missing After= for the device
unit we bind to. This ensures that the device unit is active when systemd
tries to start the service. (Closes: #819314)
* systemctl: Fix argument handling when invoked as shutdown.
(Closes: #776997)
[ Simon McVittie ]
* localed: tolerate absence of /etc/default/keyboard.
The debian-specific patch to read Debian config files was not tolerating
the absence of /etc/default/keyboard. This causes systemd-localed to fail
to start on systems where that file isn't populated (like embedded systems
without keyboards). (Closes: #833849)
[ Martin Pitt ]
* systemctl, loginctl, etc.: Don't start polkit agent when running as root.
(Closes: #774153, LP: #1565617)
