Should we disable module-dbus-protocol by default? The reasons for doing
so would be
1) I recently discovered that this module does use-after-free at
shutdown, and possibly this could happen on unplugging USB devices as
well. When poking upstream about it , his response was "Now that
you've pointed out this issue, I don't trust the code at all
In combination with
2) The only consumer I know of module-dbus-protocol is qpaeq, which we
don't ship. So in general, this module just takes up space. Do you know
of any other program that needs this module?
My suggestion is that we just comment this module out, at least until
upstream have provided patches that makes it stable. Another option
would be to move it to another package, like we do with the raop module.
If there were a lot of user experience we would have broken, that would
have been a different story, but right now, I'm not afraid of just
disabling it. What do you think?
