Getting it is not used, let's drop support for notifications about (un)registered events from connector. Another option was to check credentials on receiving, but we can always restore it without bugs if needed, but genetlink has a wider code base and none complained, that userspace can not get notification when some other clients were (un)registered. Kudos for Sebastian Krahmer <krahmer@suse.de>, who found a bug in the code. Signed-off-by: Evgeniy Polyakov <zbr@ioremap.net> Acked-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de> Signed-off-by: David S.
