The “spider pumpkin” release.

This is a bugfix release for the 1.12.x stable-branch.

git tag: dbus-1.12.2
git branch: dbus-1.12


• Log a warning if a new connection cannot be accepted due to an
  out-of-memory condition or failure to identify its AppArmor or
  SELinux context (fd.o #103592, Simon McVittie)


• Make use of $(MKDIR_P) compatible with install-sh, fixing build when a
  GNU-compatible `mkdir -p` is not available (fd.o #103521, ilovezfs)

• When building for Windows with Autotools, avoid `echo -e`, fixing
  cross-compilation on non-GNU platforms like macOS
  (fd.o #103493, Tony Theodore)

• Fix crashes in the server side of the nonce-tcp: transport under
  various error conditions. This transport should normally only be used
  on Windows, where AF_UNIX sockets are unavailable; the unix: transport
  is the only one recommended for production use on Unix platforms.
  (fd.o #103597, Simon McVittie)

Internal changes:

• Improve test coverage on Travis-CI (Simon McVittie)
