Oh, right.  Attached are two patches:

  * The first exports the pam-service-* getters, making it possible to
    extend a pam-service.

  * The second extends the “session” field of the mingetty-service to
    add “” to the required modules.

Loading the module doesn’t yet do anything on GuixSD because we don’t
generate ‘/etc/security/limits.conf’ (or ‘/etc/security/limits.d/’), but
it should respect such file if it does exist.  (I have not yet tested
this, but I will some time this week.)

Does this look okay?

Yes, that’s a better idea.

I’ll familiarise myself with how other (service) configuration files are
created in GuixSD and propose a patch later.
