  * logind: backport v238/v239 fixes for handling DRM devices.
    These changes introduce all the fixes that correct handling of open fd's
    related to the DRM devices, as used by for example NVIDIA GPUs. This backport
    includes some refactoring, corrections, and comment updates. This to insure
    that correct history is preserved, code comments match reality, and to ease
    backporting logind fixes in the future SRUs. (LP: #1777099)
  * Disable dh_installinit generation of tmpfiles for the systemd package.
    Replace with a manual safe call to systemd-tmpfiles which will process any
    updates to the tmpfiles shipped by systemd package, taking into account any
    overrides shipped by other packages, sysadmin, or specified in the runtime
    directories. (LP: #1748147)
