CVE-2015-0245: prevent forged ActivationFailure from non-root processes

Without either this rule or better checking in dbus-daemon, non-systemd
processes can make dbus-daemon think systemd failed to activate a system
service, resulting in an error reply back to the requester.

This is redundant with the fix in the C code (which I consider to be
the real solution), but is likely to be easier to backport.
