    logging: warn about invalid logging backends and drop "debug" backend · dbd48f26
    Thomas Haller authored
    "debug" was documentation in `man NetworkManager.conf` as a valid
    logging backend. However, it was completely ignored by
    nm_logging_syslog_openlog().
    In fact, it makes not sense. Passing debug = TRUE to
    nm_logging_syslog_openlog(), means that all messages will be
    printed to stderr in addition to syslog/journal. However, when
    NetworkManager is daemonizing, stderr is closed.
    Whether NetworkManager is daemonizing depends entirely on command
    line options --no-daemon and --debug. Hence, the logging backend "debug"
    from the configuration file either conflicts or is redundant.
    
    Also, adjust logging backend description in `man NetworkManager.conf`.
    
    Also, log a warning about invalid/unsupported logging backend.
