    PolkitSystemBusName: Retrieve both pid and uid · bfa5036b
    Colin Walters authored
    For polkit_system_bus_name_get_process_sync(), as pointed out by
    Miloslav Trmac, we can securely retrieve the owner uid as well from
    the system bus, rather than (racily) looking it up internally.
    This avoids use of a deprecated API.
    However, this is not a security fix because nothing in the polkit
    codebase itself actually retrieves the uid from the result of this API
    call.  But, it might be useful in the future.
