Bug Description

Upstream regressed systemd sandboxing in memcached 1.5.6 by commenting out '##safer##'-prefixed lines and expecting packaging to uncomment them when using a newer version of systemd that supports these lines (which we already do).

I have reported this upstream in

In the meantime, we need to patch these comments back out (re-enabling the lines). Christian Ehrhardt also suggested to me that it would be a good idea to make sure that no '##safer##' get through in case upstream add any more through a check in debian/rules.

I'm creating this bug to document what's going on so that I can link to this from this workaround in the packaging. We should be able to drop this workaround as soon as this is resolved upstream.
