    gdbus: support unix:dir= addresses · fc597fa5
    Michael Catanzaro authored
    unix:dir= addresses are exactly the same as unix:tmpdir= addresses,
    already supported by GDBus, except they forbid use of abstract sockets.
    This is convenient for situations where abstract sockets are
    impermissible, such as when a D-Bus client inside a network namespace
    needs to connect to a server running in a different network namespace.
    An abstract socket cannot be shared between two processes in different
    network namespaces.
    
    Applications could use unix:path= addresses instead, so this is only a
    convenience, but there's no good reason not to support unix:dir=.
    Currently it is not supported simply because unix:dir= is a relatively
    recent addition to the D-Bus spec.
