[systemd-devel] [PATCH v2] logind: make sure to terminate systemd user on logouts

Currently if the user logs out, the GC may never call user_stop(),
this will not terminate the systemd user and (sd-pam) of that user.

To fix this, remove the USER_CLOSING state check that is blocking the
GC from calling user_stop(). Since if user_check_gc() returns false
this means that all the sessions of the user were removed which will
make user_get_state() return USER_CLOSING.

Conclusion: that test will never be statisfied.

So we remove the USER_CLOSING check and replace it with a check inside
user_stop() this way we know that user_stop() has already queued stop
jobs, no need to redo.

This ensures that the GC will get its two steps correctly as pointed out
by Lennart:

Note: this also fixes another bug that prevents creating the user
private dbus socket which will break communications with the user
