[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#752781: [acpid] doesn't work with logind but without systemd as PID 1 or systemd-shim

Package: acpid
Version: 1:2.0.22-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Current procedure of causing a shutdown when the power button is pressed
is as follows:
- acpid
  - /etc/acpi/powerbtn-acpi-support.sh
    - /usr/share/acpi-support/policy-funcs
      - CheckPolicy()

But CheckPolicy only checks if systemd-logind is running. This is not
enough. If there is no systemd as PID 1 or systemd-shim running, the
org.freedesktop.systemd1.Manager interface will be unavailable for
systemd-logind. The system won't shutdown.

Attached patch enables checks for availability of the interface (but
preserves the earlier test for logind running).

If there is no such interface acpid falls back to classic shutdown.
