Bug Description

The subject pretty much says it all. The functionality enabled by the inverse of --no-sessions doesn't seem to be widely used, and causes a ton of both noisy and scary-looking ringbuffer spew on machines that spend a lot of time entering and exiting chroots (like buildds, or my personal laptop with sbuild).

I think it would make more sense to invert the toggle, making --no-sessions the default and adding and documenting a new --chroot-sessions (or whatever) that enables the feature for the few people who actually want or need it.
