allow dbus to restart upstart immediately on upgrade

Bug #1146653 reported by James Hunt on 2013-03-05
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
dbus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

As of version 1.6, Upstart has been able to perform stateful re-exec [1]. The postinst maintainer script for dbus therefore needs to be amended to force a stateful re-exec if the running instance of Upstart supports stateful re-exec such that /sbin/init picks up the latest version.

This is a refinement to the change made by bug 740390.

Debdiff attached as udd branch is out-of-date.
