[PATCH] Move machine-id to /var

Unless we have a use case for reboot-persisting UUIDs, it would be
easier for users (live CDs, package maintainers, thin clients, embedded
systems, etc) if it was kept in /var/run which is more likely to be
writable on such unusual systems. Persisting it across reboots seems as
useless to me as persisting the name of the session bus socket, which we
obviously don't try and do either. Is it too late to change this?
