Package: udev
Version: 240-5
Followup-For: Bug #918764

I do not have cgroupsfs-mount installed, but i have elogind.
It apparently mounts /sys/fs/cgroup/unified, so this is enough for
udev to think it is under systemd.

A typical /proc/self/cgroup is :


So it is my understanding from the source code that manager->cgroup
should contain '/'.

A debugging session breaking on on_post() very unhelpfully indicates
that 'manager', 'manager->cgroup', 'userdata' and other helpful
variables have been optimized out...

(I only use elogind to satisfy the overly broad dependencies of
 libpolkit-qt5-1-1, but that is another bug, #794537).
