It is completely insecure and work-in-progress, the API is not
finished, the kernel side not generally available.

Kdbus in systemd is useless and cannot be tested without the kernel
module. We will still change the kernel module API, so any change in a
newer systemd, or the kernel, will render the machine using kdbus

It is really no stuff a distribution should ship at this moment. "make
install" for systemd is as easy to do as the "make install" of the
kernel module, for people who want to play with kdbus.
