    core/dbus: rework creating numbered D-Bus export path by putting counter into class · 57ab9fd6
    Thomas Haller authored
    I dislike the static hash table to cache the integer counter for
    numbered paths. Let's instead cache the counter at the class instance
    itself -- since the class contains the information how the export
    path should be exported.
    
    However, we cannot use a plain integer field inside the class structure,
    because the class is copied between derived classes. For example,
    NMDeviceEthernet and NMDeviceBridge both get a copy of the NMDeviceClass
    instance. Hence, the class doesn't contain the counter directly, but
    a pointer to one counter that can be shared between sibling classes.
