(just witnessed I can no longer halt or reboot my computer, and
ck-list-sessions pretends it's a non-local session.)

See “Signing off and reviewing” on that page:

I guess it would be nice to have the original authors(s) of that patch
to sign off on it before it can be merged.

Please note that I didn't check the actual patch yet, but I might give
it a try soon-ish.
