      core: don't use pointer value for pending action string in active-connection · 10c63f16
      Thomas Haller authored
      The pending action gets logged. We should not log plain pointer
      values because they may be used to defeat ASLR.
      
      Instead, construct the pending action using the "version_id". This
      number is also unique, and suits sufficiently well. With debug logging
      you can still grep the log for the corresponding active-connection (and
      anyway it's obvious from the context).

      device: don't delay startup complete for pending-actions "autoconf", "dhcp4" and "dhcp6" · 1e520641
      Thomas Haller authored
      These "pending-actions" only have one purpose: to mark the device
      as busy and thereby delay "startup complete" to be reached. That
      in turn delays "NetworkManager-wait-online" service.
      
      Of course, "NetworkManager-wait-online" waits for some form of readiness
      and is not extensively configurable (e.g. you cannot exclude devices from
      being waited). However, the intent is to wait that all devices are "settled".
      That means among others, that the timeouts waiting for carrier and Wi-Fi scan
      results passed, and devices either don't have a connection profile to autoactivate,
      or they autoactivated profiles and are in state "connected".
      
      A major point here is that the device is considered ready, once it
      reaches the state "connected". Note that if you configure both IPv4 and
      IPv6 addressing modes, than "ipv4.may-fail=yes" and "ipv6.may-fail=yes"
      means, that the device is considered fully activated once one address
      family completes. Again, this is not very configurable, but by setting
      "ipv6.may-fail=no", you can require that the device has indeed IPv6
      addressing completed.
      
      Now, the determining factor for declaring "startup complete" is whether the
      device is in state "connected". That may or may not mean that DHCPv4,
      autoconf or DHCPv6 completed, as it depends on a overall state of the
      device. So, it is wrong to have distinct pending actions for these operations.
      
      Remove them.
      
      This fixes that we wrongly would wait too long before declaring startup
      complete. But it is also a change in behavior.
