The "tenants with a leaking roof get priority" release.

This is a security fix release for the current stable branch, 1.8.x.
Please upgrade unless you have a reason to keep using an older branch.

git tag: dbus-1.8.10
git branch: dbus-1.8

Security fixes:

• Increase dbus-daemon's RLIMIT_NOFILE rlimit to 65536
  so that CVE-2014-3636 part A cannot exhaust the system bus'
  file descriptors, completing the incomplete fix in 1.8.8.
  (CVE-2014-7824, fd.o #85105; Simon McVittie, Alban Crequy)
