We really don't want the IPC mechanism to be in a flux state. All tools
have to fallback to a non-standard mechanism in that case.
If I have to pull in a dbus daemon in the initramfs, we still have the
chicken and egg problem for PID 1 talking to the logging daemon and
systemd cannot talk to journald via dbus unless dbus-daemon is started,
dbus cannot log anything on startup, if journald is not running, etc...
Do I get this right that it is basically a userspace *design* decision
that you use as a reason to have kdbus inside the kernel?
Is it really necessary to use DBUS for talking to journald? And does it
really matter that much if any message before starting up dbus do not
appear in the log? /proc/kmsg is a ring buffer, it can still be copied over
