2010-11-17Revert "linux: Use VT_WAITEVENT if available to avoid spawn too many threads"Lennart Poettering1-1/+0
This reverts commit 2782cc8d4950effbc4407455e72bd4750cef6e11. VT_WAITEVENT is racy unfortunately, since events that happen between the time we woke up from a VT_WAITEVENT and we go into the next VT_WAITEVENT are lost completely.

Starting from linux kernel 2.6.32 there is a new ioctl VT_WAITEVENT which can monitor vt switches and return new vt number.

2009-08-12get rid of session.d's session_active_changed calloutLennart Poettering1-1/+7
The 'session_active_changed' callout is an invitaton to racy misuses since it splits up the session switches into two events. This patch gets rid of it. At this point there are two known users of the session.d/ callouts: - Suse/Ubuntu ship a script for emulating pam_atconsole style /var/run/console management for supporting D-Bus' at_console feature properly. Both Martin Pitt and Kay Sievers however are happy with having this feature go away. In addition I prepared a patch for D-Bus which makes the need for these scripts go away entirely. That patch is currently awaiting review. - udev's udev-acl tool currently uses this. However this doesn't work correctly anyway since it relies on that the CK database is correctly dumped before the tool is invoked, which CK does not handle properly at this time. In fact fixing this problem is the main reason why I came up with this patch series. Kay is also very interested in seeing the 'session_active_changed' logic go away. A later commit introduces a replacement functionality that is less racy. Please note that this patch does not drop session.d/ in its entirety. Only the 'session_active_changed' type callout is removed. Scripts that only rely on 'session_added'/'session_removed' will continue to work fine, and will continue to be supported.

It was trying to write the log message way too early, before the root filesystem was mounted.
