+# The following is a workaround for a scheduling deadlock in systemd
+# v230 (and probably other versions). What "naturally" happens is
+# that we would be socket-activated by systemd-logind which is
+# dbus-activated during systemd' dbus_init(), which is called when
+# dbus.service starts. However, systemd is buggy and won't activate
+# any services during dbus_init(), so the whole thing deadlocks. A
+# timeout means that boot eventually continues, but we are left with a
+# half-working system.
