I have this issue on my TODO list for a long time now. It's really
ugly to solve and there's no nice way to introduce a notion of "bus is
settled"... hm...

I think it's reasonable to allow setting the base-timeout in
/etc/systemd/logind.conf, but I want to know Lennart's opinion first.
Preferably, this timeout was a kernel-timeout on the bus-probe itself.
But we don't have anything like this, so we need the excessive
timeouts in user-space as we cannot know whether we're just scheduled
late or whether the bus-probe really takes that long... Meh...

My system takes <5s to boot, so I could easily set those timeouts to
10s and everything would be fine. And I also don't care for hotplug
changes while the system is off/suspended, hence, I could even disable
the timeout and everything would just work.
Not really sure how to proceed...
