  new logging. (bsc#1154948)
- Fix warnings thrown during package installation (bsc#1154043)
- Fix for systemctl hanging by restart. (bsc#1139459)
- man: mention that alias names are only effective after 'systemctl enable'. (bsc#1151377)
- ask-password: improve log message when inotify limit is reached. (bsc#1155574)
- udevd: wait for workers to finish when exiting. (bsc#1106383)
- core: fragments of masked units ought not be considered for NeedDaemonReload. (bsc#1156482)
- udev: fix 'NULL' deref when executing rules. (bsc#1151506)
- Introduce function for reading virtual files in 'sysfs' and 'procfs'. (bsc#1133495, bsc#1159814)
