bug#31498: [PATCH] Notify systemd in daemon-initialized and kill-emacs

From: Lucas Werkmeister
Subject: bug#31498: [PATCH] Notify systemd in daemon-initialized and kill-emacs
Date: Sat, 9 Jun 2018 15:01:08 +0200

With --[bg-]daemon and Type=forking, systemd will only consider the
daemon to have fully started up once the original process exits, and
will wait until then to start units depending on the Emacs service.  To
get the same functionality with --fg-daemon, use Type=notify instead of
Type=simple and explicitly send a readiness notification to systemd at
the point where the forked process would in --bg-daemon mode notify its
parent process and cause it to exit.  Similarly, notify systemd at the
beginning of the shutdown process as well.  (Both of these calls are
successful no-ops if emacs was not started by systemd.)
* etc/emacs.service: Update Type.
* src/emacs.c (daemon-initialized) [HAVE_LIBSYSTEMD]:
* src/emacs.c (kill-emacs) [HAVE_LIBSYSTEMD]: Call sd_notify().
