I agree - allowing full dbus access via abstractions/nameservice 
(because the upstream kernel doesn't support dbus rules yet) sounds like 
a very bad idea. I'd prefer to keep this as an Ubuntu-only patch for 
now. (But please don't forget to upstream it one day.)

You can also see it the other way round - this is a very good argument 
for upstreaming all the kernel patches ;-)

BTW: I don't know if openSUSE uses systemd-resolved at all. All I can 
say is that my local unbound works fine - but that's not the default 
openSUSE setup ;-)
