Have you tried running all the D-Bus test cases outside VM? I added that
check for hwsim-test for the exact purpose of running these only within
a clean VM where D-Bus service can be configured cleanly. These won't
work on the host with generic D-Bus service (i.e., on almost any normal
Linux distro) without significant extra effort. In other words, I'm not
planning on applying this unless someone first makes all those test
cases work without issues on host where D-Bus gets started by the distro
itself and not the hwsim scripts. For me, there did not seem to be
enough justification to do this.
