To elaborate a bit on this: this is also necessary since sessions can
only be assigned to a single TTY. However, you need the proper
tty-to-session assignment since otherwise logind+udev's device ACL
management won't work and your X session will then lack access to audio
devices, drm, or video4linux and similar...
