As reported in my first report [1]:

I am trying to send a patch to systemd-devel to split the content of the
systemd sysctl config file in smaller file to simplify the overriding of
the single file.

Worse, the workaround which I found [2] will be nullified with the new
systemd versions because it is changing the processing order of the
sysctl files configuration..

IMHO The big problem is that there is a sysctl setting as "side effect"
of systemd. It would be a "debian" setting.

Thanks in advance for your work (packaging, testing, talking with the
bug highlighter :-) ).
