Bug description:
  Test case
  - Under Ubuntu 15.04 (or 15.10), set up an unprivileged container as in 
  - Boot it. You'll get a lot of errors like

    [FAILED] Failed to start Journal Service.
    systemd-journald-audit.socket failed to listen on sockets: Operation not 
    [FAILED] Failed to listen on Journal Audit Socket.

  - The same happens with systemd-nspawn -b.

  As a result, the journal isn't working at all, and you have a bunch of
  failed journal related units.

  With a fixed systemd package, systemd in the container should realize
  that it cannot listen to the audit socket (as the kernel doesn't allow
  that -- the audit subsystem isn't fit for namespaces right now), and
  "sudo journalctl" should show the journal and systemd-journald.service
  should be running. These systemd fixes are sufficient for nspawn, but
  not completely for unprivileged LXC containers -- there the journal
  will start working, but systemd-journald-audit.socket will still keep
  failing (this is less important)

  REGRESSION POTENTIAL: Very low. This only affects the fallback error
  code path if binding to the audit socket failed. In that case the
  journal is currently not working at all. This usually doesn't happen
  on real iron/VMs (they also always CAP_AUDIT_READ), so there is no
  practical change there.
