      worker: add reauthentication support · 2853ce58
      Ray Strode authored
      This commit adds reauthentication support for
      screensavers and user switching to use.
      1) It adds a "verification mode" argument to the GdmSession constructor
      that tweaks the behavior of how the session worker acts to fit login or
      unlock scenarios better.
      2) It adds a way for programs to open a communication channel for user
      verification to already runnings sessions (so reauthentication happens
      in the context of the session).

      daemon: Add an interface for communicating with GDM via D-Bus · e0a3c565
      Ray Strode authored
      One goal for GNOME 3.6, is to replace the screen locking functionality
      provided by gnome-screensaver with redesigned functionality provided
      by gnome-shell.
      At the same time, it makes sense to consolidate the yucky PAM
      authentication code to one place (GDM).
      Right now only greeters can talk to GDM.  At the time the greeter is
      started, the slave sets up a private communication channel which the
      greeter then connects to for initiating communication.
      This commit adds a new method to the org.gnome.DisplayManager.Manager
      interface that allows opening a private connection to the slave that
      is associated with the currently running session.  That slave exports
      the session object over the bus that greeters can interact with the
      session as appropriate.  This interface replaces the
      GDM_GREETER_DBUS_ADDRESS environment variable that used to to be used
      for connecting the greeter to the slave.
      This commit also drops gdm-greeter-server and gdm-chooser-server which
      don't fit the new model, and are really just thin middle men that don't do
      anything important.
      Furthermore, this commit splits GdmSession interfaces 3 orthogonal parts
      up into 3 separate interfaces on the session object.
      A future commit will make this interface work for screensavers/reauthentication.
      Based on work by Giovanni Campagna <gcampagna@src.gnome.org>
